Inge Lyse Hansen is a Classical Archaeologist and Ancient Historian whose research and teaching focuses on the visual and material culture of Greece and Rome.

Complementary to traditional text-based historical investigations, art and archaeology provide distinct sources of information on the social history and value systems of the ancient world. Hence, material culture may be seen as a set of visual narratives rooted as much in the cultural ideals of its creators as in the lives of the viewers for whom it was intended.

Professor Hansen's teaching investigates how images, monuments and spaces express particular social and cultural concerns and how they acquire meaning for patrons and viewers in a multicultural and socially stratified world.

Her research interests focus on three major themes. First, Roman portraiture and sculpture as a source of self-imaging and expression of cultural values; second, the articulation of Roman identities and patronage in the provinces in the late Republic and Empire, with special focus on Epirus; third, Roman funerary art and the use of myth and gender to articulate exemplary virtues.

She co-directs the international Alberese Archaeological Field School in Tuscany, investigating Roman Etruria between the 3rd century BC and the 6th century AD. The field school is organized in association with JCU; for more details click here.

She is Vice President of the Rome Society of the Archaeological Institute of America. The society is an international forum for knowledge exchange and networking for professionals and students, with a vibrant public events program. For details click here.

Professor Hansen is further Research Fellow at the British School, and Publication Manager for the Butrint Foundation and the large-scale excavations carried out by it at the ancient city of Buthrotum, in modern-day Albania, (butrintfoundation.co.uk).
