In addition to teaching classical art and archaeology since 1980, Neils has guest-curated two major international loan exhibitions: “Goddess and Polis: The Panathenaic Festival in Ancient Athens” (1992), and “Coming of Age in Ancient Greece: Images of Childhood from the Classical Past” (2003), and edited and co-authored their catalogues. Her most recent book is The Parthenon Frieze (Cambridge University Press 2001) and she is currently editing a book on the Parthenon, also for Cambridge. Neils has been a visiting professor at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, a resident of the American Academy in Rome, and Fellow at the Getty Research Institute. For six years she was on the curatorial staff of the Cleveland Museum of Art, where she organized numerous exhibitions and wrote the second volume of its catalogue of Greek vases. She is also a field archaeologist and has excavated at Torone in northern Greece, as well as two sites (Murlo and Morgantina) in Italy. Her current research is an examination of war monuments and the construction of memory in classical Athens.
