Dr. Mireia Lopez Bertran will present Punic women as ritual agents: evidence from material and visual culture

Dr. Mireia López-Bertran is Associate Professor at Departament of Art History of the Universitat de Valencia, Spain. She received her PhD degree in History from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) in 2007. Between 2010-2012, she was a postdoctoral researcher of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture-FECYT, and she worked as an Honorary Research Fellow at the Archaeology Unit of the University of Glasgow. She was appointed Marie Curie Postdoctoral fellow at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona between 2014 and 2016. She has participated in various national and international research projects that have allowed her to excavate in Phoenician-Punic sites such as the Tyre Al-Bass cemetery (Lebanon) or the Lixuscolonies (Larache, Morocco), Cerro del Villar (Málaga, Spain) or Sulky (St. Antioco, Sardinia). She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Tübingen, Brown University, and the Getty Research Institute.

Currently, she is working on the art and iconography of the Iron Age Mediterranean from an embodied and gender perspective. More specifically, she specializes in coroplastic art from a material culture perspective. In fact, she is coediting a book entitled “Art as Material Culture” to be published by Routledge in 2024.
