Dr. Spurlock to teach Florence Summer Institute course
Dr. Spurlock will be teaching a 4-week 3-credit hour course at the Flroence Institute in Italy this summer. The course, FACES: Human Head Anatomy with a Forensic Art Focus, will include museum visits to review Renaissance artist/anatomists and their depictions of the human head during the first week of the course. Students will then learn the anatomy of the head and neck, features that distinguish males from females, and the effects of aging on the face during weeks 2 and 3. Finally, students will learn how to do a 2-dimensional forensic facial reconstruction based on skull photographs.
