Bradley Sekedat received his Ph.D. in Archaeology from Brown University in May. Sekedat's work focuses on Roman Asia Minor with particular interests in small-scale resource acquisition (such as stone extraction). He is intrigued by notions of how landscape, memory, and place form community within the context of empire. His Writing 5, "Uses and Misuses of the Past," invites students to write their way towards answers to complicated questions, such as: Who owns the past? Who are the experts and why should we believe them? In the process, students will learn how data are used to make claims and how strong arguments are formulated.
In Winter 2013, he will also teach a course for the Department of Classics: CLST 22 "Greek Classical Archaeology: City-States and Panhellenic Sanctuaries."
