Biography

Associate Professor Nassos Papalexandrou, a specialist in Greek Art and Archaeology, joined the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History in 2002. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University focusing on the ritual dimensions of Early Greek figurative art. Prior to teaching at The University of Texas at Austin, he taught at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and spent the 2001-02 academic year as a research fellow at the Center for Hellenic Studies, Washington DC. His first book, The Visual Poetics of Power: Warriors, Youths, and Tripods in Early Greece was published in 2005. He is currently working on a second book that explores the role of monsters in the arts and rituals of Early Greece. He offers undergraduate classes on various aspects of Greek Art and Archaeology (Myth in Images in Greek and Roman Antiquity, Art and Archaeology of Greek Sanctuaries, Visual Culture of Preliterate Greece). His graduate seminars explore various themes regarding the Art and Culture of Early Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean (11-6 centuriesBCE), such as the Orientalizing Phenomenon and Art as a Means of Communication in Preliterate Societies. Since 1999 Papalexandrou has been excavating a large public building of Cypro-Archaic date (ca. late 6th c. BCE) at Polis tis Chysochou, Cyprus.
