Projektbeschreibung der*des Nominierenden

Professor Versluys is one of the most prominent international scholars in the field of classical archaeology. His ground-breaking research shows the importance of Classical Studies for a deep historical perspective on questions of globalisation, culture-contact, migration, innovation, and human-thing entanglement. The engagement with the presence of the past and the importance of deep history for our societies today and our future is a leitmotif in Versluys’ research. His work therefore has a deep impact in a variety of different fields beyond his own discipline. During his stay in Germany, he will focus on new fieldwork projects in South-East Turkey, which will shed light on urbanism, material culture and local responses to ancient globalism.
