Annelies Cazemier's main current project is a book on Greek sanctuaries and the rise of Rome. It connects themes of Greek religion, Hellenistic kingship, and Roman imperialism, and demonstrates how sanctuary sites in mainland Greece and the Aegean were focal points of interaction during Rome’s rise to power in the region. This development needs to be understood in light of the function and significance of the sanctuaries (e.g., at Delphi and Delos) in the longue durée, including their relations with Hellenistic rulers such as the Antigonids.
Together with Emma Nicholson (University of Exeter), Annelies Cazemier co-directs the Antigonid Network, an international network of more than 40 scholars with expertise on the Antigonids, who became the ruling dynasty of Macedon after the death of Alexander the Great. The Antigonid Network runs a series of online research seminars. Further information can be found on the website: https://blogs.exeter.ac.uk/theantigonidnetwork.
