    PhD Researcher Ancient History. Research: Women in Roman Syria: the cases of Dura-Europos, Palmyra, and Seleucia on the Euphrates

    My research aims to provide new insights in the changing social and public life of women of the provincial and civic elites in Syrian cities under Roman rule during the first three centuries CE. Central to this research are their public self-representation, their functioning as, for example, priestesses and benefactresses, and their role in the social networks of their cities, families and tribes. To analyse the position of Syrian women and the way this changed under Roman rule I opt for an interdisciplinary approach, combining inscriptions and pictorial sources (paintings, mosaics, honorary and funerary sculptures). Central to this study is the quest for Roman, Greek and local cultural influences on the public (self-)representation, functions and social roles of the women from the local elites. account
