According to the latest issue of the Kelsey Museum Newsletter, Christopher Ratté, Professor of Classical Archaeology in the Departments of Classical Studies and History of Art, will become the new Director of the Kelsey Museum in July 2013. Professor Ratté has been a Research Associate with the Kelsey since his arrival at Michigan from New York University in 2006 and has served as Director of the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology since 2009. He has directed excavations and surveys of Kelsey-sponsored fieldwork at Aphrodisias in Turkey and Vani in the Republic of Georgia. He thus brings a wide spectrum of interests and skills to the directorship.
