Online Event



Teaching artmaking, labs, or with special collections on Zoom required deep creativity. What did we learn from the experience? What does experiential learning look like now? What new approaches or innovations to hands-on or haptic learning have faculty introduced? What spaces on campus are most equipped for experiential or haptic teaching and learning?

Caroline Cheung

Assistant Professor, Classics

Princeton University

Caroline joined the Department of Classics at Princeton University in Fall 2018: prior to arriving she was a fellow of the American Academy in Rome and lived in Rome for two years. Her research focuses on the history of the Roman Empire and draws on material and textual evidence to study the socio-economic history of non-elites under Roman rule, ancient food and agriculture, and craft production. She is a field archaeologist and has participated in various projects in Italy, including the Pompeii Artifact Life History ProjectCosa Excavations, and Contrada Agnese Project in Morgantina, and has been trained in Greek papyrology. Her current book project examines the dolium, a particular type of ceramic storage container that has never been studied systematically, to provide insights into storage technologies, various types of craft production, and the workforces behind one of the largest food systems of the pre-modern world. Much of her work has been in Roman and pre-Roman Italy, with expanding interestin other areas of the ancient Mediterranean. As a result, she has been working on several papyri and objects from Greco-Roman Egypt.  She teaches undergraduate courses on Roman history, material culture, and Latin literature and graduate seminars on Roman history and material culture.
