Dr. Lindsey A. Mazurek

Dr. Lindsey MazurekMy research focuses on the relationships between religion, art, and Mediterranean globalization and connectivity in the Hellenistic and Roman world. I am currently preparing a monograph on the lived experiences of Egyptian sanctuaries in Hellenistic and Roman Greece. Additionally, I am preparing an article on Middle Platonic philosophy and the Egyptian sanctuary at Marathon.

Together with Cavan Concannon of the University of Southern California, I have published on applications of Fernand Braudel's Mediterranean history to the ancient world. In 2016 we launched a new digital humanities project to study how individuals and groups in Roman Ostia construct regional and Mediterranean-wide social networks. Other past areas of research include Greco-Roman canon formation, ancient urbanization, and intersectional identities in the ancient world.
