Join us at 9:30 am Pacific on Thursday, March 9th for the seventh lecture in the Badè Museum‘s virtual series, “Women & Gender Performance in the Ancient Middle East.” This program is hosted by the Badè Museum in partnership with the Archaeological Research Facility (ARF) at UC Berkeley.
Dr. Anne Austin will present “Tattooed Women, Bes, and the Marsh: Connecting Tattooed Bodies and Figurines at Deir el-Medina, Egypt”
Anne Austin is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology & Archaeology at the University of Missouri—St. Louis. Her research combines the fields of osteology and Egyptology in order to better understand daily life in ancient Egypt. Specifically, she uses data from ancient Egyptian human remains and daily life texts to reconstruct ancient Egyptian healthcare networks and identify the diseases and illnesses people experienced in the past. Anne’s next research project will focus on the practice of tattooing in ancient Egypt and its potential connections to gender, religion, and medicine.
