Personal profile

Biography

Georgia Barker completed a Bachelor of Ancient History (2012-2014) and a Master of Research (2015-2016) at Macquarie University. She is currently a PhD candidate in Egyptology where she examines the funerary models and wall scenes of the late Old and Middle Kingdoms. She is also a tutor in the ancient history department, teaching undergraduate units on Egyptian history, hieroglyphs and art. Additionally, she has been involved in a number of projects at the Australian History Museum at the university.

Research interests

Georgia’s research involves a detailed comparitive analysis of ancient Egyptian funerary models and wall scenes from the Old and Middle Kingdom cemeteries of Meir, El-Bersha and Beni Hassan. The similarities between the two types of artwork are regularly highlighted by scholars, but her close examination has revealed that the two media also exhibit a number of significant differences. This has led to a more accurate understanding of the relationship between the two media and their unique roles within the tomb.
