The Council of American Overseas Research Centres (CAORC) has named Rachel Kulick (PhD 2017) as one of eight recipients of their 2018-19 Multi-Country Research Fellowship for her project “Bronze Age Urban Environments on Crete and Cyprus: Investigating Socio-Environmental Interactions using Geoarchaeology.”
The CAORC Multi-Country Fellowship Program supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for U.S. doctoral candidates and scholars who have already earned their PhD. Rachel’s inter-island geoarchaeological research will be the first of its kind to provide high-resolution soil micromorphological data to assist in understanding the emergence and transformations of some of the earliest urban centres in these regions. Research will be conducted at the Bronze Age urban site of Palaikastro, Crete, Greece, under director Carl Knappett (UofT) and at the Bronze Age urban site of Kalavasos-Ayios Dhimitrios, Cyprus, under director Kevin Fisher (UBC).
Please join us in congratulating Rachel on receiving this prestigious fellowship!
