Dr. Aleksandra Kubiak-Schneider: Searching for Social Histories in Jerash

I‘m Polish, originally from Warsaw, but live in Austria. I‘m an archaeologist and ancient historian specialized in the inscriptions from the Near East. My WiRe research project at the University of Münster is about the cults in Jordan, but in research it turned to be focused more on the social history and the names of the people living in Jerash, Jordan.

My results will contribute to know the ethnical components and origins of the people living in this city in antiquity.

Fun fact: I like to read all texts, inclusive labels and graffiti.
