    Sofie Remijsen is universitair hoofddocent Oude Geschiedenis aan de UvA. Haar onderzoek richt zich vooral op de cultuur en het sociale leven in het Romeinse Rijk tot in de late oudheid, met een bijzondere interesse voor sport en spelen, papyri uit Egypte en kalenders en tijdsgebruik. Op dit moment leidt ze het VIDI-project Lived Time: Using and Experiencing Time in Late-Antique Egypt.

    Ze studeerde Oude Geschiedenis aan de KULeuven (België), waar ze in 2012 promoveerde. Vanaf 2013 werkte ze vier jaar als Juniorprofessorin für Alte Geschichte aan de universiteit van Mannheim (Duitsland). Een herwerkte versie van haar proefschrift werd door Cambridge University Press gepubliceerd: The End of Greek Athletics in Late Antiquity (2015).

    In de laatste jaren ontwikkelde Sofie Remijsen een bijzondere interesse in de band tussen tijdsgebruik en -beleving en identiteit in de late oudheid. In het kader hiervan was ze van 2017 tot 2020 co-coördinator van het DFG-netwerk CHRONOS. In 2021 kende het NWO haar een VIDI-subsidie toe voor het project Lived Time: Using and Experiencing Time in Late-Antique Egypt.

    Daarnaast is ze ook coördinator van de onderzoeksgroep Cities and Settlements in the Ancient World van OIKOS and redactielid van het tijdschrift Lampas.
