Washington State University Scholar Honored for Her Work on Late Roman Art

Hallie Meredith, a teaching assistant professor of fine arts at Washington State University, received the William R. Levin Award for Research in the History of Art before 1750 from SECAC. Formerly the Southeastern College Art Conference, SECAC is a nonprofit organization that promotes the study and practice of the visual arts in higher education on a national basis. The organization holds an annual conference and publishes the journal Art Inquiries.

Dr. Meredith was honored for her project “Fragmentary and Unfinished Art: Documenting Undocumented Late Roman Art and Process.” The project highlights the unfinished work of anonymous Roman artists who often deliberately concealed their techniques. Focused on the 3rd–7th centuries CE, it seeks to illuminate the processes of production which occurred during a rich period in late Roman carving but were not passed down in written texts.

Dr. Meredith is a graduate of the University of Chicago, where she majored in the history of art. She earned a master’s degree in Roman archaeology from the University of Durham in England. After earning her doctoral degree at Lincoln College of the University of Oxford in England, in 2006, Dr. Meredith was a lecturer at the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She joined the faculty at Washington State University in 2015. Dr. Meredith is the author of Word Becomes Image: Openwork Vessels as a Reflection of Late Antique Transformation (Oxford University Press, 2015).
