Faculty Book: Elizabeth Macaulay Lewis
Katharine T. von Stackelberg and Elizabeth Macaulay Lewis, editors
Housing the New Romans: Architectural Reception and Classical Style in the Modern World
(Oxford University Press, 2017)
This book offers the first major study of the reception of ancient (Classical and Egyptian) architecture to focus on domestic space in a holistic way, combining studies on exterior façades and streetscapes, interior decoration, and landscaping. It proposes the "Neo-antique" as a new framework through which to analyze the reception of ancient architectural styles rather than simply Neo-Classical or Neo-Egyptian. And it supplies a variety of critical interpretative frameworks via case studies that move reception studies beyond the field of textual analysis into material culture. Elizabeth Macaulay Lewis is an assistant professor of archaeology of the classical, late antique, and Islamic worlds; and New York studies in the M.A. of liberal studies program at the Graduate Center.
