Susan Lupack Named Next Hesperia Editor


After a comprehensive search, the ASCSA has chosen Susan Lupack to be the next editor of Hesperia following the retirement of Tracey Cullen in June.

"I am both honored, and just plain happy, to be chosen as the next editor of the American School's journal," Lupack said. "The American School has been part of my life for nearly twenty years, both professionally and personally. To now be in the position of working closely with my fellow archaeologists in publishing their work is a truly exciting prospect. I know I have big shoes to fill, but Tracey Cullen has pledged to help with the transition."

An alumna of New York University, Lupack went on to earn her Ph.D. in Classics in 2002 from the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in Classical archaeology, Linear B, and Bronze Age archaeology. She was a Fulbright Fellow and Regular Member of the ASCSA in 1995-1996, and was an Edward Capps Fellow and Associate Member in 1996-1997. Her extensive fieldwork includes seasons with the Pylos Regional Archaeological Project (PRAP), the Corinth Excavations, excavations at the Athenian Agora, and the Eastern Boeotian Archaeological Project. Her years of editing experience and background in academic and scientific publishing make her the perfect fit for the editorship.

"We look forward to welcoming Susan to the ASCSA's offices in Princeton this summer," Andrew Reinhard, Director of Publications, said. "Hesperia will remain in good hands."
