We are delighted to announce that Prof. Emma Buckingham has joined the AMS faculty as a Visiting Assistant Professor on Classical Archaeology in 2019-2020.
"My main focus is on the Early Iron Age and Archaic periods, primarily the Greek diaspora in South Italy and Sicily. Affiliated interests include the archaeology of identity, network theory, culture contact in the western Mediterranean, and theoretical perspectives on Greek and local Sicilian foundations. I am also interested in the development of Greek civic buildings, especially in the Archaic period. I have primarily worked on material from Morgantina in Sicily, and have additionally excavated at Azoria on Crete, Corinth, and the Athenian Agora. Submitted publications and manuscripts in preparation include: “Incised and stamped wares as markers of status, connectivity and indigeneity at Morgantina,” co-published with Carla Antonaccio; “Permeability and mutability in indigenous Sicilian borderlands;” and “Detecting networks among population groups in Early Archaic Sicily.” Last year, as the recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship in Greece, I conducted research on assemblages and networks associated with cross-Adriatic exchange in the Protoarchaic period. This summer I plan to return to Sicily to conduct further research in anticipation of publication of dissertation material. I also fence competitively and have won a number of national tournaments (although it's been a while!)."
