The Eunice M. L. Cohen Classical Studies Artifact Research Collection (CLARC) Exhibits
Brandeis owns more than 800 artifacts dating from 1500 BCE to the Byzantine period. Two selections of objects from the time period of the Dead Sea Scrolls are on display in two locations: 1) the second floor of the Mandel Center for the Humanities (which includes a chemical analysis of some objects by Alison Crandall ‘13) and 2) the main floor of the Goldfarb Library.
Four Brandeis undergraduate CLARC interns (Hilary Cheney ‘13, Ben Federlin ‘14, Keith Frankston ‘13, and Snaedis Valsdottir ‘14) curated the exhibits under the direction of Professor Ann O. Koloski-Ostrow. The Mandel exhibit focuses on daily life (food and religion) and the Goldfarb exhibit focuses on women, health, and beauty in the time of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
