Lisa Trever

Assistant Professor Fellow
2017-2018

Lisa Trever asks how art and images can be interpreted in an ancient, “non-Western” setting a thousand years removed from textual sources. This problem is situated within a study of mural art made in north coastal Peru in 200–850 CE. Through “archaeo-art history,” Trever uses scientific, material, and visual analyses to write histories that cannot rely on conventional archives.
