Prof. Judith Barringer



Judy Barringer is Professor of Greek Art and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. Her scholarly work centres on the archaeology, art, and culture of Greece, particularly the intersection between art, myth, and religion, from the Archaic through Hellenistic periods. More specifically, she is interested in why images, particularly sculpture and vase painting, appear as they do and how they acquire meaning for ancient patrons and viewers from their physical and social contexts. Her recent publications include The Hunt in Ancient Greece (2001), Art, Myth, and Ritual in Classical Greece, and The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Greece (2014).
