Key Research Interests and Expertise

My current research examines linguistic manifestations of politeness and interpersonal dynamics in a broader range of Late Egyptian letters from the Egyptian New Kingdom and Third Intermediate Period. However, I am also interested in social dynamics and decorum, palaeography, semantics, epistolary texts from all periods, and female scribal tradition across the Near East. My research interests also cover Politeness Research more generally, Historical Pragmatics and translation practices. 


I am happy to supervise PhD students in the following areas: historical politeness and socio-linguistics/pragmatics, Ancient Egyptian philology and culture, gender studies, politeness studies, semantics, and discourse analysis (SFL/CDA). I am also happy to supervise any intercultural communication-based PhD.
