Ann C. Gunter’s work addresses the visual and material culture of the ancient Near East and its Eastern Mediterranean neighbors. Her primary research interests include artistic and cultural interaction between the Mediterranean and the Near East; the relationship between material culture and social and cultural identity; and the reception of ancient Greek and Near Eastern art in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Among her recent publications are Greek Art and the Orient (Cambridge University Press, 2009) and contributions to A Companion to the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East (Wiley-Blackwell 2012) and Critical Approaches to Ancient Near Eastern Art (in press). She is currently editing A Companion to the Art of the Ancient Near East (Wiley-Blackwell) and preparing for final publication the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age ceramics from the site of Kinet Höyük, on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.
