STAFF & SPECIALIZATIONS

 

In my research I have benefitted from considerable field experience, extended periods of scientific activity and a knowledge of Akkadian which allows me to use written sources to a larger extent than many of my colleagues in the field. My interests focus on: the history and culture of Mesopotamia in the 2nd Millennium BC, the subsistence economy of Northern Mesopotamia, Mesopotamian trade of the 2nd Millennium BC, Iconological approach to the Mesopotamian art.


 

Research interests: my principal research and scholarly interest lies currently in the art and visual cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world, particularly in the Greek, Etruscan and Roman art and archaeology, historical interpretation of ancient visual representation and its relationship with social and political culture. I also have interest in the Iron Age iconography, mutual relationship between the Classical World and the Barbarian Europe, interdisciplinary approaches to art history and archaeology, current theoretical frameworks and their practical application in the history of ancient art and archaeology.
