Isiac Studies: ritual practice and cultural memory
A PhD project with Dr Bommas will look at the development of the cult(s) of Isis in Egypt, Greece and Italy (other areas also welcome), with the focus on ritual practice and cultural memory. He is particularly interested in receiving proposals for projects that will apply a diverse range of methodological approaches to archaeological and written sources.
Cultural Memory is one of the research projects currently being undertaken in the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology at Birmingham, including the publication series Cultural Memory and History in Antiquity. We currently supervise a number of PhD dissertations on memory in the ancient world in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.
