Veronica Ikeshoji-Orlati

Classical Archaeologist. Digital Humanist. Data Enthusiast.

Greek Vases and Databases

I am the Robert H. Smith Postdoctoral Research Associate for Digital Projects at CASVA, where I am continuing work on my database of musical iconography in red-figure vase-painting while advising on the ongoing development of, and sustainability planning for, two digital projects: the History of the Accademia di San Luca c. 1590-1635 and the History of Early American Landscape Design. Since 2016, I am also the lab director and ceramicist for the San Giuliano Archaeological Research Project (SGARP), sponsored by Baylor University and located in Barbarano Romano, Italy.

In 2016, I completed my PhD in Mediterranean Art and Archaeology at the University of Virginia with a dissertation entitled Sight and Sound: Music in 4th century BCE Apulian Vase-Painting. From 2016-2018, I served as a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University, where I curated legacy datasets, advised on digital humanities projects, and cogitated on good practices for working with archaeological and art historical collections as data.
