FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Adam Levine, a Rhodes Scholar and Mellon Fellow, will visit the Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) campus Tuesday, April 2, 2013. The purpose of his visit is to work with the Honors Freshman Colloquium class by sharing his experiences in applying for and being named a Rhodes Scholar. These IPFW students are planning to pursue post-graduate degrees and also plan to pursue nationally competitive, prestigious scholarships, such as the Rhodes. Levine will also talk with the Chapman Scholars and will be the featured speaker at "Lunch with an Historian," Tuesday at noon in Helmke Library, Room 275.

Levine graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College in 2008, where he was a triple major in anthropology, art history, and mathematical social science. He continued his studies as a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford, earning a master’s degree in the history of art and visual culture with distinction in 2009. He will complete a doctorate in the history of art there this year.

Levine will talk about his research and work in museums, how museums negotiate issues of cultural heritage, how the museum business model is changing, and the role museums play in creating historical narratives. His own research interests lie in the areas of Greek and Roman art.

A reception to thank Levine for his visit and to allow more students and faculty to speak with him will be held at 4 p.m. at YoYo’s in the Walb Student Union. Members of the media are invited to attend the reception and speak with Levine.
