Title of Thesis: [provisional] “The Emergence of the Linear B Script in Context: Innovation and Conservatism”


Biography:

I am a PhD candidate in Classics at Peterhouse (Cambridge) and my research focuses on Mycenaean Epigraphy, Palaeography and Linguistics.

Prior to moving to Cambridge, where I completed an MPhil in Classics (2015), I obtained my Bachelor’s (2012) and Master’s (2015) Degrees in Classics from the University of Padova (Italy), where I was also a student of the Galileian School of Higher Education (2009-2014), an autonomous branch of the University of Padova.

My academic interests revolve around Bronze Age Aegean Scripts and Archaeology and my doctoral research aims at exploring the emergence of the Linear B script in its palaeographical context, considering aspects of innovation and conservatism in relation to its template script, Linear A.
