Emily Catherine Egan will join the Department this fall as Assistant Professor of Eastern Mediterranean Art and Archaeology. Her work focuses on the visual cultures of ancient Greece, and in particular on material from the Mycenaean Palace of Nestor, about which she wrote her dissertation at the University of Cincinnati. As an active field archaeologist, Emily works with a wide range of primary evidence, which she seeks to contextualize within its archaeological, art historical, and social contexts. At Maryland, she will continue her ongoing research on the production and reception of early Greek surface decoration and tackle issues relating to iconography, artistic techniques, and visual literacy among different groups in the Late Bronze Age Aegean.
