Research Interests: archaeology of ancient North Africa (c. 200 B.C.E.-300 C.E.), especially votive and funerary practices, pottery as an indicator of culture and economy, and cultural identityarchaeology of ancient North Africa (c. 200 B.C.E.-300 C.E.), especially votive and funerary practices, pottery as an indicator of culture and economy, and cultural identity
I am accepting graduate students for 2023-24to work with me on my current research projects, all of which are based on the archaeology of Punic and/or Roman North Africa and require proficiency in reading French:
- the economic and cultural ramifications of Roman pottery from Leptiminus, Tunisia;
- cultural identity as expressed on votive stelae from sanctuaries (a Latin reading ability would be beneficial for this topic);
- and terracotta figurines as offerings at sanctuaries and cemeteries.
