Dr Riet van Bremen

Senior Lecturer


Riet van Bremen's general interest is in Hellenistic history, and in particular the history and geography of Asia Minor (modern Turkey). She teaches, among others, a survey course on Hellenistic history, a thematic course on the Seleukid Empire and MA options on the Attalid kingdom and Hellenistic epigraphy. Much of her research is based on the study and interpretation of Greek inscriptions. She has just completed, in collaboration with W. Blümel and J.-M. Carbon, a Guide to Inscriptions in the City of Milas and its Museum, which will appear in autumn 2014. In May/June 2012 she was appointed Chaire d’ État at the Collège de France to give four lectures entitled Les neoi dans le monde hellénistique, a subject on which she is also completing a book. She was Distinguished Aleshire Lecturer at the University of Berkeley in November 2012.
