Véronique Dasen is professor of Classical archaeology at the University of Fribourg. She studied at Lausanne (Licence ès Lettres) and Oxford University (PhD). Her research is led in a multidisciplinary and anthropological perspective. Her research interests range from ancient iconography and material culture, the history of the body, of medicine and of magical practices to gender studies, history of childhood and ludic culture (games and divination, games and love, passage rites). She led several research projects on these topics, often with associated exhibitions.
She is currently leading an ERC advanced five year project Locus Ludi: The Cultural Fabric of Play and Games in Classical Antiquity.
