Dickenson, C.P., PhD I am an Ancient Historian and Classical Archaeologist currently teaching for the University of Groningen. My work focuses on public space, public life, and statues and monuments in Hellenistic and Roman Greece and in the ancient world more broadly. I teach a broad range of courses at BA and MA level in the History and Archaeology departments and have a particular affinity with cultural and political approaches to the ancient world. I am currently engaged in publishing the votive portrait statues from the Hellenistic and Roman period Artemision at Messene. The project aims to casts new light on why people dedicated statues of themselves in sanctuaries, to explore the experience of viewing religious scultpure and to develop new methods for using 3D computer technology for archaeological reconstruction.

Toor, C.J. van, MAPhD student My interest is in societal history. During my studies, I specialized in funerary epigraphy and iconography in the Greek East, from the Archaic to Late Roman/Early Christian period. In my PhD I focus on mortuary practices, particularly on commemoration practices and self-representation on funerary monuments, integrating textual, visual, and material aspects.
Side projects and interests include the literary knowledge in funerary epigrams, nationalism in archaeology, and the way in which the use of language both shapes and limits the way we think.
