Professors


Heidi Dierckx


My name is Heidi Dierckx, and I will be the professor for the 2013 Term III trip to Greece and Turkey at Elmira College. I am an Associate Professor of Classical Studies, where I teach Ancient History, Art and Archaeology  as well as Ancient Greek and Classical Mythology.  In addition to that, I also regularly teach Archaeological Excavation Methods at the 19th century site of Mark Twain’s summer home outside Elmira. I earned my B.A and M.A. from the University of Durham in England, and then continued to receive my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. My areas of interest include Minoan Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, lithics technology, and raw mineral sourcing. I specialize in the analysis of chipped and ground stone implements from various archaeological sites in East Crete. I also spend my summers at Mycenae as a lithics and small finds specialist and field archaeologist/sector supervisor of the excavations in the Lower Town. I have published in a variety of international publications of classical archaeology. I am from Greece, and have traveled with a Term III class every two years. I also love and enjoy food, the sun, and I look forward to another successful and fun class this spring!!

Michalis is the other professor of our trip. He is actually Heidi's husband, who were recently married this past month. So, first of all, Congratulations to them! Michalis is from Mycenae, Greece, home of the legendary King Agamemnon, who led the Greeks in the Trojan War. He will be our personal tour guide in this area. He is still learning English, (and we are still learning Greek), so hopefully we can try to explain things to each other. He is a great guy, a lot of fun, and just as excited to go on this trip with us!
