Caroline Tully's Profile Picture
Dr

Caroline Tully

 

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art from Monash University, Graduate and Postgraduate Diplomas in Classics and Archaeology and a PhD in Aegean Archaeology from the University of Melbourne. My doctoral research examined the archaeology of cult through the phenomenon of tree worship in the Bronze Age Aegean, eastern Mediterranean and Egypt and is currently in press with Peeters Publishers.

I have strong interests in the Environmental Humanities, nature, landscape, animism, ecology, visual ecocriticism, ecofeminism, the Anthropocene, and posthumanism. I am also interested in Reception Studies, particularly in regard to the uses of the art, architecture and religions of the ancient Mediterranean, especially the appropriation of ancient Egyptian religion within Western Esotericism. My postgraduate diploma thesis investigated the uses of ancient Egyptian religion by 19th century British occultists and I have published several articles and book chapters on this topic. I have undertaken archaeological fieldwork at Tell-es Safi/Gath and Caesarea in Israel. From 1996 to 2010 I was a professional tapestry weaver at the Australian Tapestry Workshop and I maintain an interest in textiles, particularly the garments of Minoan Crete.
