Elizabeth Baltes received her B.A. in Political Science from Louisiana State University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Art History (Greek Art and Archaeology) from Duke University. Her research interests lie at the intersection of sculpture, politics, and public space in the ancient Greek world. Her dissertation project, “Dedication ad Display of Portrait Statues in Hellenistic Greece: Spatial Practices and Identity Politics,” was supported by Archaeological Institute of America’s Olivia James Traveling Fellowship. Her scholarly work has been published in the American Journal of Archaeology and review essays have appeared in the Journal of Roman Archaeology and Classical Review.

Dr. Baltes is also exploring the use of digital technologies as tools for both research and teaching. Her work inside and outside the classroom leverages visualization technologies, such as 3-D modeling and mapping programs, not only as a means of representation, but also as a method of inquiry.
