Eastern Mediterranean and Near Eastern Art and Archaeology
Ph.D., Bryn Mawr College, 1994

Joanna S. Smith specializes in the art and archaeology of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East in the Bronze and Iron Ages. Her research interests address how archaeological sources of information illuminate the ways in which artistic ideas were communicated among people, across time, and among culture areas. Her archaeological fieldwork centers on the island of Cyprus. She has also worked with archaeological projects in England, France, Israel, Jordan, and Turkey. Currently she is coordinating the publication of the Department of Art and Archaeology’s excavations at Polis Chrysochous (ancient Marion and later Arsinoe), a project begun and directed by William Childs. She joined that project in 1988 and is completing the publication of excavations in the Iron Age sanctuary of Polis-Peristeries. She is also contributing to the organization and research for an exhibition, City of Gold: Archaeological Excavations at Polis Chrysochous, Cyprus, for the Princeton University Art Museum.

She received her A.B. summa cum laude (1987) in Art and Archaeology at Princeton University and her M.A. (1989) and Ph.D. (1994) in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology at Bryn Mawr College. The grants and fellowships she has received most recently were awarded by the Council of American Overseas Research Centers, Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute Research Fellowship (2011), Institute for Aegean Prehistory (2009), the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton) (2008-2009), the Institute for Advanced Studies (Jerusalem) (2008), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (2005). She has traveled as the Norma and Rueben Kershaw (2004) and the Cesnola (2009) lecturer for the Archaeological Institute of America.
