Seth Estrin is an historian of the art, archaeology, and visual cultures of ancient Greece. A specialist in Greek sculpture, his research interests include intersections between art and poetry (especially tragedy and epigram), problems of prehistoric art, and, more broadly, the place of emotions and affect in art history. He is currently working on his first book, a study of the relationship between recognition and subjective experience in Greek art, focusing on funerary sculpture of Classical Athens.
He received his BA in Classics and Art History from the University of Toronto, his MSt in Classical Archaeology from the University of Oxford, and his MA and PhD, also in Classical Archaeology, from the University of California, Berkeley. He has held fellowships from the Social Science Research Council and the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts.
