Biography

Professor Oddo received her Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology from the University in Cincinnati, with a specialization on Aegean Bronze Age. Her research is centered on the study of pottery and ceramic regionalism in Late Bronze Age Crete (Neopalatial period, ca. 1700-1470 BCE). In her work, she is interested in investigating the ways in which pottery style is actively manipulated to express socio-political identities of elite groups, in ancient Crete. Her recent work has helped define the Southeast Crete as a ceramic region of Neopalatial Crete. Currently, Prof. Oddo is working on the study of the architecture and the pottery from the House of the Frescoes at Knossos, a building in the outskirts of the Palace of Minos.
