Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow, chair of the department of classical studies at Brandeis and co-director of the graduate MA program in Ancient Greek and Roman Studies, is the 2016 recipient of the Archaeological Institute of America’s Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award.
The award will be presented to Koloski-Ostrow at the organization’s annual meeting in San Francisco on Jan. 7.
Koloski-Ostrow is an expert in Greek and Roman art and archaeology, culture, literature, engineering and daily life and regularly works at archaeological sites such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. Her courses also cross-list with fine arts, anthropology, Italian studies and women, gender and sexuality studies.
 “In bestowing Professor Koloski-Ostrow this award, we wish to acknowledge and applaud the invaluable service she has given the archaeological community as an educator,” said Andrew Moore, the AIA’s president.
The AIA presents the Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award to recognize individuals who, among other things, have demonstrated excellence in the teaching of archaeology, developed innovative teaching methods, or interdisciplinary curricula, have five or more years of teaching experience and are actively teaching.
