Sally Waite

Dr Sally Waite is Senior Lecturer in Greek Art and Archaeology. She is a Classical Archaeologist working with the Shefton Collection of Greek and Etruscan Archaeology at the Great North Museum: Hancock. Sally is leading a large ongoing project, relating to the history of one of the U.K.'s largest collections of Greek and Etruscan archaeology which is currently housed in the Great North Museum. The project aims to uncover the complete history of the collection, and to reconstruct an intellectual biography of its founder. The project will collate and disseminate the late Professor Brian Shefton's personal archive of correspondence, slides, scholarly materials and items pertaining to the history of his collection.

Sally's research focuses on the visual and material culture of ancient Greece and has a particular interest in the body and identities, specifically in relation to questions of sex, gender and sexuality. She is keen to supervise PhD students in this area.
