About Stephanie Martin
I am a PhD candidate in the Mediterranean Archaeology concentration.
I spent my undergrad at Bryn Mawr College outside of Philadelphia where I graduated with a B.A. from the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, with minors in Geology and Latin. I have excavated in Greece, the United Arab Emirates, and Azerbaijan, in addition to working at sites in southern Maryland and working in CRM along the east coast. Most recently I have been part of the Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey project, as trench supervisor and Assistant Director for data management.
My dissertation research focuses on the spatiality and materiality of migrant journeys in the Eastern Mediterranean. By examining the spatial configuration of factors which contribute to migrant decision-making, the physical spaces across which migrant journeys unfold, and how material culture reflects and informs migrant practices, I explore migrant decision making and identity in ancient and contemporary contexts.
