Kostis Kourelis is Assistant Professor in Art History at Clemson University specializing in architectural history, archaeology, theory, and preservation. Dr. Kourelis investigates urbanism, rural settlements, and houses in the medieval Mediterranean. Field projects in Greece (Peloponnese, Boeotia, Macedonia), Sicily (Monte Polizzo), Tunisia (Jerba), and the Black Sea (Chersonesos) are an integral part of his research and teaching. Articles on the Greek grand tour, on modernism’s discovery of Byzantium, on medieval manifestations in film, or on the archaeology of global migration represent theoretical preoccupations that supplement Kourelis’ work on domestic archaeology.
Dr. Kourelis received his Ph.D. from the Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World Graduate Group, University of Pennsylvania, and has taught at Swarthmore College, Arcadia University, SUNY New Paltz, and UPenn.
