Selan Daniela

Daniela Selan was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is currently finishing her degree in Anthropology with an orientation in Archaeology at La Plata University (UNLP). Daniela is particularly interested in Bioarchaeology – the study of human remains from archaeological sites. At the moment, she is working on the analysis of osteological collections from the Upper Paraná River Delta (Entre Ríos province) in the La Plata Museum. All four of her grandparents were born in Slovenia and migrated to Argentina, so both cultures are fundamental in her life. Part of her interest in studying cultural diversity – in the present as well as in the past – derives from her personal history. As part of her ASEF Fellowship, Daniela will be working with dr. Anton Velušček at the Institute of Archaeology ZRC SAZU. She looks forward to generating intellectual bonds with Slovenian experts and learning how they approach archaeological and cultural heritage. Beyond her interest in growing professionally, Daniela seeks to take advantage of her visit by exploring the many historical and natural landmarks in the country, meeting relatives and friends, and strengthening her relationship with her Slovenian heritage.
