About me

Adam Rabinowitz is an Associate Professor in the Department of Classics and Assistant Director of the Institute of Classical Archaeology at The University of Texas at Austin. He holds his PhD (2004) from the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology at the University of Michigan. He is a field archaeologist with a focus on ancient social relations as expressed through commensal practices and colonial interactions. His interest in the use of digital platforms for archaeological documentation and publication began during his work at the Roman site of Cosa in the 1990s and intensified in the course of excavations in the South Region of the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine site of Chersonesos in Crimea in the mid-2000s. Since then, in the course of his preparation of the South Region excavations for publication, he has also become involved with long-term archival preservation and the digital dissemination of rich contextual datasets. He is involved in several digital humanities projects related to the linking and visualization of information about the Classical past, including Pleiades (, a spatial gazetteer of ancient places; GeoDia (, an interactive spatial timeline of Mediterranean archaeology; Hestia2 (, a narrative time-map of the Histories of Herodotus; and PeriodO (, a gazetteer of scholarly definitions of archaeological, historical, and art-historical periods.
