Dr. Demetriou received her Ph.D. in Classics from The Johns Hopkins University in 2005. Her research interests focus on archaic and classical Greek history, with a particular interest in exploring different kinds of cross-cultural interactions within the Greek world and between Greeks and non-Greeks. Her book, Negotiating Identity in the Ancient Mediterranean: The Archaic and Classical Greek Multiethnic Emporia (Cambridge University Press, 2012), studied the construction of ethnic, civic, religious, and social identities in the ancient Mediterranean from the seventh to the fourth centuries BCE. In addition to her book, Dr. Demetriou has co-edited Approaching the Ancient Artifact: Representation, Narrative, and Function (De Gruyter 2014). She is currently working on her second book, which investigates foreign relations and the practice of diplomacy at both the state and non-state levels between Greek and Phoenician city-states in the fourth century BCE. Dr. Demetriou taught for nine years at Michigan State University
