Emma-Jayne Graham is Senior Lecturer in Classical Studies at The Open University. Her research specialisms include votive offerings, sensory archaeology, Roman mortuary practices, and experiences of ancient disability and impairment. She is General Editor for a new book series with Routledge focused on Studies in Ancient Disabilities, and co-produces The Votives Project website and network with Jessica Hughes.
Emma-Jayne’s recent publications include Bodies of Evidence: Ancient Anatomical Votives Past, Present and Future (Routledge, 2017, co-edited with Jane Draycott), ‘There buds the laurel: Nature, temporality, and the making of place in the cemeteries of Roman Italy,’ Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal 1 (2018, Open Access), ‘Babes in arms? Sensory dissonance and the ambiguities of votive objects’ in Senses of the Empire: Multisensory Approaches to Roman Culture (Routledge, 2017, edited by Eleanor Betts), and ‘Mobility impairment in the sanctuaries of early Roman Italy’ in Disability in Antiquity (Routledge, 2017, edited by Christian Laes). She is currently working on a new monograph provisionally entitled Religion, Material Culture and the Body in the Roman World which draws on archaeological assemblage theory and new materialist approaches to explore the ways in which lived religion was produced and experienced in Roman Italy.
