Doctoral Student in Archaeology and the Ancient World (Ph.D. expected, May 2018)

Catie graduated from Wesleyan University in 2011 with a B.A. in both Archaeology (Honors) and German Studies. Her honors thesis addressed the difficulties with various interpretations of the archaic korai on the Athenian Acropolis, and the possible social implications of their dedication. After graduating from Wesleyan, Catie spent a summer working in the North American Archaeology Lab at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Following this, she spent a year at the University of Tübingen on the Connecticut-Baden-Württemberg Exchange Scholarship, where she studied Latin, Greek, and archaeology. Her field work experience includes work with the Cotsen Institute Pucará Archaeological Project in Peru (2010), the Bucknell University Thebes Synergasia Project (2013-2014) and the Mazi Archaeological Project (2015-) in Greece,  and the Brown-Michigan Notion Archaeological Survey in Turkey (2014-). Catie's dissertation focuses on Greek settlements overseas in the Archaic and Classical periods, examining the processes of community formation in Ionia, southern France, and northeastern Spain through daily practice in domestic and cult contexts. Some of her other interests include connections between the northern and western coasts of Anatolia; constructions of identity in prehistory; revised and evolving approaches to the archaeology of gender; phenomenology; and monumentality.
