Welcome Stephanie Selover!
Stephanie Selover comes to us from the University of Chicago, where she is finishing her Ph.D (BA Stanford, MA; Univ. Chicago). Her primary expertise is in the archaeology of Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and the Levant, with a focus in the prehistoric periods up to the end of the Early Bronze Age (ca. 2000 BCE). Her dissertation examines the archaeology of warfare in prehistoric Turkey, and focuses on the interplay between the rise of complex societies and an increase in warfare and violence. She has excavated at a number of sites in Turkey, Syria, Israel, Italy, and the United States. Currently, she is a member of the Çadir Höyük excavation team in Turkey. This quarter, Stephanie is teaching a course on “Ancient Warfare.” In the winter quarter, she will offer “Introduction to the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East” for NELC. We invite you to take advantage of Stephanie’s expertise this year and take her courses.
