Aikaterini PsimogiannouAikaterini Psimogiannou, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Department of Anthropology, is the 2017 recipient of the Harriet and Leon Pomerance Fellowship. Her project, “Mortuary Practices, Ceremonial Feasting and Social Transformation at the Dawn of the Bronze Age on the Greek Mainland,” will create an alternative, holistic model of the transformation of agricultural villages during the Neolithic period to the settlements of the Bronze Age in southern Greece. The project will use ceramic analysis, radiocarbon dating, and other data gathered from the sites of Proskynas and Mitrou to produce both relative and absolute chronologies for the region. The Fellowship will allow Ms. Psimogiannou to travel in Greece, and will assist with radiocarbon dating costs.
