Andrea Trameri


I received my BA in Classics and Oriental studies in 2009 and my MA in Ancient Near Eastern Studies in 2012 at the University of Pavia (Italy). In my MA thesis I examined a critical edition of a Hittite ritual text of Hurro-Hittite tradition related to the religion of the Netherworld. My research interest is in Anatolian philology and Hittite studies, in particular related to the complex cultural and religious background of Anatolia within the network of Ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean traditions. Besides the philological studies, I have worked from 2011 in the archaeological field for the NYU and Pavia University excavations at Kınık Höyük in Turkey (Cappadocia). At ISAW I intend to further investigate the features of Hittite religion in the context of ancient Mediterranean cultural background and pursue my work and study in the archaeological field.
