Fiona Rose-Greenland is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology. Her research asks how state-level constructs, including nationhood and policy institutions, shape (1) cultural practices, (2) knowledge meaning and production, and (3) categories of people, such as citizens and criminals. She conducts these inquiries primarily through qualitative and comparative-historical methods.
Fiona’s dissertation offers a comparative study of archaeological practice in Italy and England. She examines how artifacts and soil have become objects of culture and objects of science through the creation and enforcement of state policies, with a focus on the boundaries that are maintained between experts and amateurs. Her work emphasizes both the subsuming of cultural objects by state-level institutions and the particular alignments of power used to police archaeological spaces and objects. The project draws on findings and theories from cultural sociology, science studies, and the sociology of nationalism. Outside of the dissertation, Fiona’s work focuses on the role of images and of institutions in shaping social actors and practices. She continues to incorporate cases and ideas from her extensive training in Greek and Roman art and archaeology.
