Dr. Agnès Garcia Ventura and Dr. Mireia Lopez Bertran will present On Phoenician/Punic music and musicians: a gender approach

Dr. Agnès Garcia-Ventura received her Ph.D. in History by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona in 2012. Since then, she has been awarded several postdoc fellowships in competitive calls to work at the University of Heidelberg (Germany), the University of Rome, ‘La Sapienza’ (Italy), and at the University of Barcelona (Spain). Currently, she is “Ramón y Cajal” fellow at the University Autònoma of Barcelona (Spain). Now she is also a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, more specifically at the Institute for Gender and Sexuality Research.

Her main areas of interest are gender studies (especially their application to Assyriology), historiography of ancient Western Asian studies in Spain, the organization of work in Mesopotamia, and ancient musical performance (in both Mesopotamia and the Phoenician and Punic contexts). She is the coeditor of several volumes linked to gender studies, including Studying Gender in the Ancient Near East (Eisenbrauns and Pennsylvania State University Press, 2018) and The Mummy Under the Bed: Essays on Gender and Methodology in the Ancient Near East (Zaphon, 2022).
