Membership, Coroplastic Studies Interest Group

Membership in the Coroplastic Studies Interest Group (CSIG) is available to members of the Archaeological Institute of America, and to anyone with an interest in the study of terracotta figurines and other sculptural objects in clay from antiquity. 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.

To become a CSIG member

Professor Caitlin Elis Barrett, (ceb329@cornell.edu),
