Professor Joanna Sofaer (FSA) is a Professor of Archaeology within Archaeology at the University of Southampton.

I am internationally known for my innovative research focusing on creativity, craft and innovation in the European Bronze Age; archaeology for social benefit including the past as inspiration for contemporary creative practice; archaeologies of social identity including archaeologies of the body, age, gender and bioarchaeology. I have published widely on these topics and have engaged in collaborative work with diverse partners in the UK and across Europe including universities, museums, cultural heritage organisations, NGOs, businesses, arts organisations, the Crafts Council, schools, and major infrastructure projects. National and international research and industry collaborations range from architecture and engineering to contemporary craft, performance art, and dance. I have developed highly successful, novel archaeology-based Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for the creative and cultural sectors.
