Biography

Susanne Binder researches and teaches across the disciplines of German Studies and Egyptology in the Department of International Studies: Languages and Cultures and in the Department of Ancient History.

In German Studies she teaches at intermediate and advanced level (GMN 311, GMN 414), preparing students for the Goethe-Institute exams at C1-level in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) as well as thematic units on aspects of the German language, culture and history. Susanne regularly teaches introductory German "Reading for Special Purposes" for ancient historians who need to acquire reading knowledge for their research, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level (GMN 295, INTS 600).

In Ancient History, Susanne's focus is on Egypt with units on Ancient Egyptian Literature (AHIS272) and on specific phases of Egyptian history (Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom). Working with texts in hieroglyphic Egyptian is integral part of these units.

Susanne's research interests focus on literature and literary studies and on 19th century German manuscript documents, travel accounts, historical enquiry and the history of 19th century scientific exploration of Egypt, esp. the German expedition with Richard Lepsius (1842-45).

In Egyptology, her research concentrates on the New Kingdom, administration and society, prosopography, Egyptian archaeology and material culture. Since 1995, Susanne has taken part in the annual archaeological fieldwork of the Macquarie Theban Tombs Project, working in Luxor (Egypt) with A/Prof. Boyo Ockinga and the team in the tombs TT 148 (Amenemope), TT 233 (Saroy), TT 147 (Neferrenpet) and TT 149 (Amenmose), which date to the 18-20th Dynasties of the New Kingodm (ca. 1400-1140 BCE).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
