Modern appropriation of past material culture: fostering ‘soft’ nationalisms in Mediterranean Europe through meaning, memory, and identity
Alicia graduated with first-class honours in Ancient Mediterranean Civilisations. She has undergone diverse archaeological fieldwork throughout Europe ranging from the Mesolithic to postmedieval times. She has also completed a community archaeology placement with Archaeology Scotland and attended a course on Greek archaeology with the British School at Athens.
She is currently pursuing a postgraduate MA in Experimental Archaeology at the University of Exeter, Alicia is hoping to integrate this hands-on approach with her research interests in outreach, public archaeology and theoretical issues – including symmetrical theory, questions of materiality, and queer and feminist theory. Alicia is also an avid capoerista, an aspiring writer and an enthusiast of idealism.
