Kyra Rietveld

Ph.D. Candidate, Art and Art History
2019-2020 Tedder Doctoral Fellow

Kyra Rietveld was awarded a Tedder Family Doctoral Fellowship to support her dissertation, which considers the uniquely local images of the goddess Artemis.  These began to transform throughout the Greek-speaking world in parallel with a push for a universal Greek identity after the Persian Wars.  This project examines the tension between the global and local, the new technology of image making through replication, and the traveling of not only humans but also images.
