The Department of Classics congratulates Sarah James on her tenure and promotion to Associate Professor!
Sarah James (Ph.D. UTexas Austin 2010) studies the archaeology of Hellenistic Greece, particularly of the northeast Peloponnese from the 3rd-1st centuries B.C. Her numerous publications treat the economies and socio-cultural histories of this region through the lens of ceramics, including her 2018 book Corinth VII.7 Hellenistic Pottery: The Fine Wares (ASCSA Princeton). As a field archaeologist, she has directed excavations at the ancient Greek cities of Corinth and Sikyon and co-directed a pedestrian survey of the northwestern Argolid plain (the Western Argolid Regional Project). Her new research project focuses on the activities of Greeks and Romans in the eastern Adriatic, with excavations starting in 2021 on the island of Brač, Croatia.
