Dr. Radloff has a PhD in Mediterranean Archaeology at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York (will be defended in September 2017) and an MA in Classics from Brock University, Canada (2011). Her research interests concern the role of the maritime environment in urban planning and the Hellenistic polis, which was the subject of her dissertation, “Mechanisms of Power and Control: the Role of Harbor-City Interaction in the Socio-Political Dynamics of Hellenistic Asia Minor.” She is currently involved in fieldwork at the Burgaz Harbors Project in Turkey and the Lechaion Harbor and Settlement Land Project in Greece. Based on her work at Burgaz, Ms. Radloff’s research project at ANAMED is “Knidian Harbors: Networks of Cultural Interaction in the Southeast Aegean.” The project analyzes the physical and spatial relationship between the harbors and urban plans of “Old” and “New” Knidos, and their connection to other harbors, anchorages, and transit routes on and around the Knidian peninsula. By contextualizing the “Knidia” within the southeast Aegean and broader Anatolian and Mediterranean world, this research aims to evaluate the “Knidia” and its regional networks and to examine the role of the maritime environment in negotiating maritime space and poliadic boundaries on an intra- and inter-regional scale.
