Sanchita Balachandran is the associate director of the Johns
Hopkins Archaeological Museum and a doctoral student in preservation
studies at the University of Delaware.
Editor’s note: This article appears in the new, all-digital issue of the University of Delaware Research magazine. This
issue spotlights UD’s graduate students, an essential group of
researchers who come from around the world, bringing fresh energy and
new perspectives to their studies. It includes a special section on UD’s
growing muscle in robotics and also reports on COVID-19 research with
impact in Delaware, the nation and the world.
Sanchita Balachandran, associate director of the Johns Hopkins
Archaeological Museum, already has two graduate degrees — in art history
and art conservation. But a few years ago, after a project with her
students generated more questions than answers, she gave in to the
relentless desire to know more and applied to the doctoral program in
preservation studies at the University of Delaware.
Her doctoral research at UD is inspired by questions that arise when
you see an object from ages ago, in her case, elegant ceramic drinking
vessels made in Greece some 2,500 years ago. How in the world did they
make that? And who made it? Using technology, she hopes to uncover the
identities of these producers of ancient Greek ceramics — the
immigrants, the migrants, the women entrepreneurs and the people who
were enslaved, bringing once-invisible artisans to life and changing our
understanding of the past.
