Sarah Culpepper Stroup is a professor in the Department of Classics at the University of Washington, and serves as faculty in the programs of Comparative Religion and Theory and Criticism.
Professor Stroup earned her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in Classics, with specializations in literature, philosophy, and archaeology. Her research interests include Roman social and textual history and spectacle, and the material culture of Greece and Rome. In Dor she is interested in the inscribed objects on the tel — from ostraka to inscriptions, and what these can tell us about the linguistic habits of the native population.
She first joined the Tel Dor excavations in 2000, and is excited to bring the UW Field School opportunity to students around the country and the world.
