An accomplished listee, Dr. Bohen celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
A native of London, England, Dr. Bohen was born in 1941 to Charles Henry and Rhoda Victoria Jones. Immigrating to the United States in 1960, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in the classics from the City University of New York in 1969 and a Master of Arts in fine arts from New York University in 1973. While studying toward her graduate degree, she served as a lecturer of archaeology at New York University for one year and a lecturer of art history at Queens College, City University of New York, for one year. Soon thereafter, she travelled abroad to Athens, Greece where she remained for several years in archaeological research on early Athens. Upon returning to New York City, she earned a Doctor of Philosophy in classical art and archaeology from New York University, thus solidifying the foundation of what would become a successful and illustrious career.
From 1977 to 1981, Dr. Bohen served as an assistant to director to research associate at the Kerameikos archaeological excavations in Athens. Thereafter, she was museum director at the World Heritage Museum of the University of Illinois in Champaign, from 1981 to 1997. During the latter half of her career, she was a research archaeologist of the German Archaeological Institute at Athens from 2004 to 2015, and most recently served as a visiting professor of the classics in research at the University of Illinois, a role she fulfilled from 2011 to 2018.
Dr. Bohen became involved in her profession through the influence of her parents. Her father served in World War II and was intrigued by the archaeology of the regions he visited, including the African desert, Italy and Egypt. Upon returning from the war, he began studying archaeology in his spare time. Dr. Bohen learned how to read from a young age, and she began reading her father's books on archaeology, thereby igniting a passion for the subject. In addition, Dr. Bohen attributes her success to her high school Latin teacher, Ms. Barton. Discovering that she had a natural affinity for foreign languages, Ms. Barton worked with her individually to hone her skills.
Among her accomplishments, in 2017 Dr. Bohen authored the book Kratos & Krater, reconstructing a protohistory for the ancient city of Athens. She has additionally contributed chapters to books within her area of expertise.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to her profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Dr. Bohen has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
