Judith McKenzie achieved an international reputation for research excellence into the art and architecture of Egypt and the Levant in the Hellenistic, Roman and Late Antique periods. Over four decades her research progressed from a study on the architecture of Petra to a comprehensive and multi-dimensional investigation into evolving social identities across place and time, as chronicled in the decorative features seen on the prolific catalogue of monumental architecture emanating from Antiquity and early Islamic times. During her career Judith held numerous research posts in Australia, Jordan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Most recently she was Associate Professor of Late Antique Egypt and the Holy Land, and Director of the Manar Al-Athar Photo Archive, at the University of Oxford.
