Amber Leenders

My research interests include women and gender in the ancient world, Latin epigraphy, Greco-Roman Egyptian sites, and various other topics in Roman, Greek, and Near Eastern archaeology. I have excavated and contributed to lab and archival work at archaeological sites in Spain, central Italy, Sicily, the Netherlands, and the Republic of Macedonia. I hope to use my passion for fieldwork and material culture studies to examine social issues in the ancient world through the lens of archaeology.

I am a first year MA student at the University of British Columbia pursuing a degree in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, while working as a research and teaching assistant in the department. I graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2017 with a BA Advanced Degree in Classics, with a minor in Latin. One of the highlights from my BA was the opportunity to co-curate an exhibit about Greek papyri for the University of Manitoba library archives.
