Amanda Fetter

Humanities Writ Large Fellow
Class of 2015 | Major in Classical Civilization, Minor in Art History & Religion

I am currently in my third year of undergraduate study at Duke University, working towards obtaining a BA in Classical Civilization. In addition to my connection with Classics at Duke, I also have ties to both the Religion and Art History departments, in which I am minoring. My interests lie in using archaeology as a tool for understanding the various roles of religion in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. Presently, I am planning on studying abroad in Rome for the upcoming semester and hopefully increasing my archaeological experience through excavating somewhere in Italy or Greece next summer. At the culmination of my undergraduate career I plan on pursuing a PhD in Classical Archaeology.

Humanities Writ Large Fellow
Class of 2014 | Major in Mechanical Engineering

I am currently a Duke University senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering, with a specific interest in design and analysis of the built environment. Throughout my academic career, I have gained experience through both an internship in building design and significant coursework utilizing 3D modeling software. These studies have been augmented by a semester spent in London, UK, where I explored the development and influences of the city’s early architecture.

Annie Haueter

Wired! Fellow
Class of 2017 | Major in Computer Science, Minors in Economics & Art History

Annie Haueter is a senior from San Francisco, California who is majoring in Computer Science with double minors in Economics and Art History. Annie first came into contact with the Wired! group after participating in Kristin Lanzoni’s seminar Mapping and Modeling Venice her freshman year. She spent the semester researching the abandoned church of Sant’Anna, and her work culminated in a 3-dimensional recreation of the structure and its interior. Annie joined the Wired! lab as a fellow the following summer and has worked on the VIVA project under Dr. Lanzoni ever since. Her early work on the project involved cataloging and researching Venetian palaces, and she is now developing animations of the Jacopo de’Barbari map of Venice to be displayed on the final interactive atlas. After she graduates, Annie will be returning to San Francisco to start work as an Automation Engineer with Apple Inc.

Hannah Hopkins

Humanities Writ Large Fellow
Class of 2015 | Major in Psychology, Minor in Art History

I am currently a junior at Duke University and pursuing a bachelor of science in psychology and an art history minor. My interests focus on Italian Renaissance art and European cathedral architecture – particularly French Gothic. During my career at Duke, I have used 3D modeling software to envision and design an entire cathedral in the Perpendicular Gothic style. I also dedicated a semester to studying art history in Venice, Italy, where I focused on pictoral and sculptural representations of the Republic of Venice as the virtue Justice.
