About Caroline Sauvage

Caroline Sauvage is an assistant professor of Classics and Archaeology at Loyola Marymount University. She received her BA in Art History and Archaeology as well as her MA and PhD in Archaeology of the Ancient World from the Université Lumière Lyon 2 in France. Her research interests include trade and maritime exchanges in the eastern Mediterranean, as well as the development and use of textile tools during the Late Bronze Age and early Iron Age. Her research focuses on exchanges, the status of objects, and their representations and use as identity markers across the eastern Mediterranean. Her work is based on the study of material artifacts and their interconnections, and aims to avoid the classic pitfalls of disciplinary partitioning in the study of eastern Mediterranean societies and group identities. She has been conducting extensive fieldwork in Cyprus, Egypt and Syria since 2002.
Her professional honors include the young researcher award in Humanities from the city of Lyon, France (2007), and the “Prix Louis de Clerc” from the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres (Paris) in 2011. She was recently a Scholar at the Getty Research Institute and received, in 2014, a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher Fellowship to work in collaboration with the Center for Textile Research in Copenhagen.
