Dr. Knoblauch’s current research involves underrepresented groups in the ancient Mediterranean world, particularly the archaic and classical Greek world (ca.600-400 BCE). The history of the Greeks is written by and about Athenian men, and Dr. Knoblauch attempts to articulate other voices, non-Athenian and non-male, through looking at the material culture left behind. This approach to the ancient world manifests itself in two main research streams, active fieldwork on the island of Cyprus, and investigations into the visual iconography of Athenian women. Dr. Knoblauch maintains a strong international profile, having presentedpaper in Italy, Germany, Greece and Cyprus and Scotland, as well as co-organizingan international conference in 2006, The Mythology and Iconography of Colonization,with colleagues from the Universita’ degli Studi di Napoli Federico II in Naples, Italy. The papers from this conference has been published in the peer-reviewed Electronic Antiquity.
