Hybrid FAST Lecture | The Greek Colonization of Southern Italy: A Multi-Scalar Approach to Cultural Encounters
Our speaker for this hybrid in-person and virtual lecture is Giulia Saltini Semerari, a research affiliate of the University of Michigan Museum of Anthropological Archaeology (UMMAA). Dr. Saltini Semerari’s research seeks to harness the Mediterranean’s rich archaeological record to reconstruct and model diverse aspects of cultural contact. In particular, she is interested in understanding how small and large-scale socioeconomic dynamics affect long-term fluctuations in connectivity.
