Evyenia Yiannouli, Associate Professor

A student of Athens, Ioannina and Cambridge Universities with a Greek State Scholarship Grant. While reading Archaeology, she acquired the basic skills of Linguistics, Philosophy and the interdisciplinary relations between Archaeology, the Humanities and Science. Her study of domestic and palatial architecture of Bronze Age Greece focused inter alia on the history and theory of architecture and archaeology, while proposing a new cultural interpretation of prehistoric buildings on account of the retrieved patterns of space syntax.

Her current research explores the issue of incipient settlement of mainland and island Greece. While the analysis focuses on the multifarious aspects of building structure on the stereo of settlements from the Mesolithic to the end of the Bronze Age (ca 9000-1000 B.C.), the significance of coastal and river complexes figures to be seminal for their historical understanding. Furthering this line of research, an interdisciplinary research project, supported by the N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” and the H.C.M.R., was established on the island of Kephallenia, the Ionian Sea, in order to set up a geoarchaeological frame of investigating and thereof understanding the historical significance of shores in general. Other research interests focus on symbolism, religion and language as well as work in the field in Greece and abroad.

She taught the Greek Bronze Age courses on Introductory and Seminar levels in the University of Thessaly (2001-2005). In the University of the Peloponnese she teaches courses on the Aegean Bronze Age, Introductory, Caucus and Seminars as well as the Maritime Archaeology courses.

She is elected head of the Maritime Archaeology Laboratory. The Lab is envisaged as an interdisciplinary infrastructure of the University for teaching and researching the vast interface between man and the sea.
