Research Interests

My research interests include the nature of human-animal interrelationships in the past, from the perspective of archaeozoology and social theories of the body and person. As an archaeozoologist, I am especially interested in the topics of fishing, hunting and origins of animal domestication, and the manner in which animal bodies are utilised, consumed, deposited and invested with meaning. Within social theory, I find especially interesting the question of fluidity of the concept of a human being and person: is it universal and stable, or can it be more flexible and include other beings and things. My current research is in the domain of ichtyoarchaeology, i. e. it focuses on the role of fish and fishing in the formation of Mesolithic-Neolithic semi-sedentary settlements in the Danube Gorges. My main research questions include the choice of species and fish size estimations, the role and effects of aquatic diet on human health and fertility, modification of fish remains (teeth) in order to adorn human bodies, the display of elements of fish anatomy in sculpture, and the reconstruction and interpretation of fishing and its economic and ideological aspects.
