Virginia L Campbell

Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, University of Leeds

After completing a BA in Anthropology and History at The American University in Washington, D.C., Dr. Campbell moved to the UK for post-graduate studies at the University of Reading, where she obtained a MA in the City of Rome, and a PhD in classics. After a teaching fellowship in ancient history at the University of Reading (2011-2012) and another teaching fellowship in ancient history and archaeology at the University of St. Andrews (2012-2013), she was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Leeds.

Dr. Campbell's Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship research project is to conduct social network analysis (SNA) for the ancient city of Pompeii. This project is two-fold: producing a prosopographical study of the town’s population, and then applying network theory to analyse the form and function of the networks within the community. Her progress can be followed on her blog, Pompeian Connections (http://pompeiinetworks.wordpress.com/).
