Bio/Research

My research ranges over several areas in Egyptology, in part because much of it is stimulated by teaching on diverse subjects. I often participate in interdisciplinary symposia and publications. My principal areas of interest are Egyptian art, literature, religion, self-presentation, the position of writing in Egyptian society, and modelling social forms. In working on these themes, I make use of texts, images, archaeological data, and various theoretical approaches. I am currently working on elite uses of the wider environment, particularly in forms and practices, such as hunting, that must be approached indirectly because they leave little physical trace.
