Professor Stephanie Moser is a Professor of Archaeology and Head of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Southampton.
Stephanie specialises in the representation and reception of the past. Her research focuses on the construction of ideas and knowledge about antiquity as they are communicated through visual images, museum displays, exhibitions and art. These subjects have been explored by Stephanie in detailed investigations of the portrayal of ancient Egypt in the nineteenth century, the history of antiquarian and archaeological illustration, and methodologies for museum analysis and the involvement of local communities in the interpretation of their heritage. Stephanie is the author of Ancestral Images (Cornell University Press 1998), Wondrous Curiosities (Chicago University Press 2006), Designing Antiquity (Yale University Press 2012), and The Beauty of Archaeology (Oxford University Press: forthcoming); all which seek to outline the two-way knowledge exchange between academic research and receptions of the past.
