Samantha Henneberry


This past year, Samantha Henneberry (2008) completed museum study and fieldwork in Greece for her dissertation on Lakonian warrior-hoplite iconography and the role of diverse craft traditions in shaping warrior identity and social memory. While the Jacob Hirsch Fellow at the American School in Athens, she researched in various collections, including the National Archaeological and Acropolis Museums in Athens, Sparta Archaeological Museum, and Altes Museum in Berlin, and traveled throughout the archaic landscapes of the southern Peloponnese (by tiny Peugeot!). This year, with funding from the Frank E. Ratliff Fellowship, Sam will focus on research and writing in Berkeley.
