Areas of Research/Artistic FocusDr. Langin-Hooper is an art historian of the ancient world, with a focus on the Hellenistic World and the Ancient Near East. Her primary research analyzes the terracotta figurines of Hellenistic Babylonia, from perspectives of postcolonialism, object agency, gender theory, and materiality. Other research interests include miniatures and miniaturization, monuments and issues of monumentality in Mesopotamian art history, and Hellenistic Babylonian prosopography.
Dr. Langin-Hooper is also a contributing partner of the Digital Humanities projects HBTIN (Hellenistic Babylonia: Texts, Images, and Names) and BPS (Berkeley Prosopography Services). http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/hbtin/
