2024 AIA-NYS Research Scholarship Recipient (Cohort V)

Allyson Blanck
Allyson Blanck (NYU Institute for the Study of the Ancient World)

My name is Allyson Blanck, and I am currently a first year PhD student at ISAW. My research focuses on topics in medical history such as wound care and surgery. The goal of my graduate work is to develop a theoretical bridge between literary analysis of medicine and paleopathological analysis of skeletal remains. I have recently worked at the Athenian Agora, and I hope to continue working with human and animal bone in field and lab contexts. I look forward to participating in the AIA-NYS scholars’ program this year and representing a disabled perspective from the upcoming generation of archeologists.
