Brief CV

Marianthi Kotea was born in Piraeus in 1964. She graduated from the Department of Political Science and International Studies of the Panteion High School of Political Sciences in 1987. As a scholar of the State Scholarship Foundation (IKY), she completed her doctoral dissertation entitled "The Industrial Zone of Piraeus, 1860-1900". In 1995 she obtained her PhD from the Department of Sociology of the Panteion University. Since 2003 she is a member of Teaching and Research Staff in the same department. She has a remarkable teaching - research presence and important administrative work.

In particular, her research project combines micro- and macro- level analysis as her interest moves between the theoretical and empirical approaches of the urban phenomenon and shifts from urban space to urban network. Her work is based both on primary sources, several of them which are either used or are being studied for the first time in the light of Urban History, as well as older and newer literature, which belongs to the field of administrative law, political science and history of local government but is approached from the perspective of Urban History.
