Ulrike Peter

Numismatist at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities

Ulrike Peter (*1966) studied Historical Sciences at the Lomonossow-University in Moscow. The topic of her diploma thesis was the differentiation of the plebeian upper class in early republican Rome. She was granted a doctoral scholarship at Humboldt University of Berlin and received her PhD in Ancient History in 1994. Her dissertation “Die Hintergründe der Münzprägung thrakischer Dynasten (5.-3. Jh. v. Chr.” (translates as “The background of the coinage of the Thracian dynasts (5th-3rd cent. BC)”) was published within the “Griechisches Münzwerk” series in 1997.

Since 1992 Ulrike Peter is Research Associate at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. In this capacity she was heading or coordinating, among others, the “Griechisches Münzwerk” (1998-2003), the “Balkan Initiative der Berliner und Brandenburger Wissenschaft“ (1999-2002), as well as the Research-Group B-4-2 – “Region and Memoria: Local History and Local Myths on Thracian Provincial Coins” – as part of the Excellence Cluster TOPOI. Last but not least, as Research Associate, she coordinated within the Academy project “Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance” the joint project “Translatio nummorum”.

In 1999 Ulrike Peter received the Colin Kraay scholarship at Heberden Coin Room / Oxford. In 2016 the interdisciplinary research project Digital Humanities Berlin awarded the team of Corpus Nummorum Thracorum, in which Ulrike Peter is decisively involved, the Berlin Digital Humanities Award.
