In the summer of 2011, Classical Studies students and Columbia College students participate in the inaugural Advanced Program of Ancient History and Art (APAHA) summer school & excavation project. The organizers, Professor Francesco de Angelis (Art History & Archaeology, Columbia University) and Professor Marco Maiuro (History, Columbia University), put together an exciting interdisciplinary program. International specialists lead seminars at Stabiae, and de Angelis and Maiuro direct the on-site excavation work of the students (Field Director: Taco Terpstra, History Ph.D., CU). Professor Katja Vogt (Philosophy, Columbia University, incoming Chair of Classical Studies) visited the excavation site and was much impressed by the students — and their demanding work in the blazing sun!
