Pinar is an archaeologist with a background in art history, anthropology and museum studies, fascinated by the diversity of human reactions to death and dying. But she is first and foremost a museum lover. Visiting museums and historic sites is the reason why she became an archaeologist and why she is the first to suggest a museum to visit when you ask her what to do in a city. She strongly believes that museums help us understand, protect, and engage with the past and with cultural differences. When she is not in the classroom or in a museum, she is at a historical cemetery somewhere in New England admiring gravestones.
