Biography

Samantha L. Martin-McAuliffe's main research and teaching interests lie in Classical antiquity, the reciprocity of the built environment and food, and the phenomenology of landscapes. Her current research projects include a book on the urbanism of Classical Athens, as well as an edited volume on the intersections between architecture and food. She is also a member of the Methone archaeological project in Greece.

 

Other ongoing projects include a comprehensive study of the Iveagh Markets in Dublin¿s Liberties, and an investigation of the early foodways of Dublin. She also has worked extensively within archaeological excavations, in particular the Athenian Agora Excavations. Most recently, she has been involved in the Lofkënd Archaeological Project in Albania, which is a collaboration between the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles, The International Center for Albanian Archaeology, and The Institute of Archaeology, Tirana. In addition, since 2008 she has worked closely with the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) on exhibitions and experimental curatorial projects, both in Ireland and abroad. These projects include the Irish Exhibition at the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale, and The Fourth Wall (2011), Ireland's first architecture and film festival.

Dr. Martin-McAuliffe completed her PhD in Architecture from the University of Cambridge in 2007. Before that she received an MPhil in the History and Philosophy of Architecture, also from Cambridge (2003). She is a graduate of Smith College (Northampton, Massachusetts), where she received a double BA (Highest Honors) in Classical Studies and the History of Art (1998). 

She is interested in supervising postgraduate work in the following areas in particular:
urbanism and public space
connections between architecture and food
reconstructions of historic architecture and landscape
