The Coroplastic Studies Interest Group consists of researchers with an interest in coroplastic studies, whether it be from an archaeological, technical, religious, social, or art historical perspective, and in promoting its understanding to members of the AIA through its various programs and publications.
Membership in the Coroplastic Studies Interest Group (CSIG) is open to anyone with an interest in the study of terracotta figurines from legally-excavated contexts. Although formed by classical archaeologists working at ancient sites around the Mediterranean and Black Sea areas, the CSIG welcomes those scholars conducting research on terracotta figurines from other areas of the world, such as Central and South America, Africa, south-east Asia, and the Pacific rim. We also extend membership to colleagues in anthropology, history, and religious studies, among other disciplines.
