Dr Candace Weddle

Candace Weddle is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Anderson University, South Carolina. She holds a PhD in classical Art History from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, an MA in Medieval Art History from Tulane University, New Orleans, and a BA in Classics from Baylor University in her home state of Texas. As an archaeologist, she has joined teams at several sites including Classe (the Roman Imperial fleet harbour outside of Ravenna), a Neolithic site in the Transylvanian region of Romania, and Princeton University’s Euchaita/Avkat project in north-central Turkey. She was also a member of the Austrian Archaeological Institute’s team excavating the “Temple of Domitian” in the well-known city of Ephesus in Turkey. The recipient of a Fulbright grant and a residential fellowship from the Koç University Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations, she spent a year in Istanbul conducting research and falling in love with that spectacular city. She has travelled widely in Europe and the Middle East and has spoken on a variety of ancient and medieval topics at conferences and as an invited lecturer at universities in the U.S., the U.K., Turkey and Indonesia. Her current primary research interest is the sensory experience of ancient life, especially the ways in which we can use archaeological and literary evidence to better understand the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and other sensations experienced by worshipers during ancient religious ceremonies.
