Sarah Bell
Doctoral Student in Archaeology and the Ancient World (Ph.D. expected, May 2024)

Sarah Bell received her B.A., summa cum laude in History and Theory of Architecture from Columbia University in 2015. Her thesis was titled, "The History of Preservation as a History Worth Preserving: William Sumner Appleton and His Work at Jackson House". She also earned an Associate Degree in Humanities from the City College of San Francisco in 2010.  Her interests include cross-cultural connections through the identification of “vocabularies” of spatial arrangement, and the tracing of etymologies of spatial language, particularly in architecture associated with religious or cult worship, especially Minoan palaces.
