About Me

Dr. A.M. Genova is a mix-methods researcher and educator with over 12 years of academic-adjacent experience, who thrives in both independent work and fast-paced, cross-functional team environments. Presenting at over 25 professional conferences (domestic and international), Dr. Genova has a background in archival repositories, qualitative research, records management, communications, network analysis, education, content curation, and writing.

She specializes in the disciplinary history of Cretan archaeology and holds an M.A. in Anthropology from Northern Illinois University and both an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago’s Department of History. In addition to her past tenure as the M. Alison Frantz Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, she excavated in the Peloponnese and in Salemi, Sicily. Trained as an anthropologist and ancient historian, her broader interests pertain to the intellectual history and process of archaeological knowledge production.

As a 2020-2021 Fellow at Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS), she will pursue her project “In Times of War and Crisis: Regional Identities and Greek Archaeology,” which offers a social-historical analysis of Greek archaeology that integrates the identity politics of Ottoman Macedonia and Crete and the broader, transnational narratives of Greek resistance.
