Episode 27 - Sharon Khalifa-Gueta

Season 2, Ep. 7

What is the connection between ancient Greece, Renaissance and Games of Thrones? Dragons and women.


In this episode Danni chats with Dr. Sharon Khalifa-Guetta, aka Dr. of Dragons. Sharon talks about how she discovered the world of dragons and women, and their meaning in art history - from ancient Greek times to Da Vinci and Titian and Daenerys Targaryen of Games of Thrones.


She explains how her academic journey led to do a PhD on "The Dragon and Femininity in Saint Margaret Paintings by Raphael and Titian" at Ben Gurion University, and to her current position as a post doctoral researcher at the Department of Art History at the University of Haifa on a Spinoza Post-Doctorial Scholarship for excellence. All that while being an academic mother.


During this episode Sharon drank an coffee and soda (Italian style), and Danni had her Italian amaretto as usual.
