Ioannis Georganas is Academic Director and Lecturer at Hellenic International Studies in the Arts. He holds an MA (1998) and a PhD (2003) in Archaeology from the University of Nottingham, and has worked for the British School at Athens, the Foundation of the Hellenic World, Lake Forest College, and the University of St Andrews. His research interests include the study of Early Iron Age burial customs and the construction of identities in Greece, as well as weapons and warfare in the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age Aegean. Ioannis has participated in excavations and field surveys in Greece (Kouphovouno, Lefkandi, Kastro-Kallithea, Praisos, Kenchreai) and Bulgaria (Halka Bunar). He served as President of the Athens-Greece Society of the Archaeological Institute of America (2005-2017) and he’s been Secretary of the Society of Ancient Military Historians (2013-present).
I am a Berlin-based prehistoric archaeologist involved in research projects between the Carpathian Basin and the Near East, with a focus on the Neolithic and Bronze Age. My research interests include the archaeology of religion and cult, metallurgy, agents of craft in prehistory, and distribution modes of prehistoric innovations.
My main areas of interest are prehistoric equitation, horse breeds of later prehistory and early medieval periods of Europe, lorinery and metalwork.
I joined the Department of History, Culture and Civilization of the University of Bologna after winning the “Montalcini” program against the so-called “brain-drain” and after a long period of research at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge (first with a fellowship from the Institute for Aegean Prehistory and then with a Marie Slodowska Curie IF). Previously, I had earned a Ph.D. at the Institute of Archeology, University College London, funded by the AHRC and the British School at Athens. My research interests range from prehistory and archeology of the Mediterranean (with particular attention to the Bronze Age), to social theory (in particular Marxist archeology) to the use of applications based on graph-theory, to cultural heritage studies (with specific attention to the so-called “difficult heritage”), and, finally, the history of the archaeological thought.
Hello 🙂 I am new to Humanities Commons. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Julia Mattes M.A. I am a researcher in prehistoric archaeology (and occasionally in art history). Due to a broad education and a liking for ‘thinking outside the box’ I enjoy to work in different fields of academia and have a wide-ranging expertise. I am a member of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Uppsala University as well as an independent scholar and holder of a number of grants. So far I mainly worked with European prehistoric cult and religion, ancient diseases, climate change, ancient art and art history.
My interests range from the history of archaeology, cultural heritage preservation, and museum studies to the art and archaeology of ancient Iranian empires, from the Achaemenids to the Sasanians. I am currently involved in the exploration of the World Heritage site of Pasargadae, the first dynastic site of the Persian empire in the sixth century B.C.
I am archaeological conservator specializing in the conservation of inorganic materials, mainly metals and glass. My research interests are in the deterioration of archaeological materials and technical studies of archaeological objects. I am currently completing a PhD focusing on the technology and trade of Late Bronze Age glass in the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean with a focus on material from sites on the periphery or outside palatial Mycenaean Greece. I also work as a conservator on several archaeological excavations and am currently working on projects in Greece and Peru.
I am an archaeologist working on prehistoric wetland sites and the archaeology of alpine spaces in the Circum Alpine region. I did my studies in Prehistoric and Roman Archaeology, Archaeological Science, Social Anthropology and the History of Eastern Europe. Accordingly, I have a deep interest in inter- and transdisciplinarity research. In my PhD thesis titling ‘Ceramics beyond Cultures: A praxeological approach to mobility, entanglements and transformation in the northern Alpine space (3950-3800 BC)’, I combined different thing, action, cultural and social theories with qualitative and quantitative methods of archaeology and archaeometry. While this project aimed at inquiring the role of spatial mobility for transformations in Neolithic pottery production and consumption practices, my latest research is focussed on the mutuality of human-environment-relations.
