Milette Gaifman is an associate professor of the history of art and classics. Her research focuses primarily on Greek religious art. Professor Gaifman is interested in topics such as the divine image in Greek religion, the relationship between artifacts and ritual, the variety of forms in Greek art—from the naturalistic to the non-figural—and the historiography of the scholarship of Greek art. We talk about her new book, Aniconism in Greek Antiquity, which was recently awarded the Gaddis Smith International Book Prize by the MacMillan Center. The prize is awarded annually for the best first book by a member of the Yale faculty.
