Director of the Griffith Institute
Dr Maren Schentuleit, Lady Wallis Budge Fellow and Associate Professor of Egyptology and Coptic Studies, has been named the Director of the Griffith Institute for 2020/21.
The Griffith Institute was established in 1939 as the centre for Egyptology at Oxford, although the genesis of core projects date back some 40 years earlier. Francis Llewellyn Griffith, the first Professor of Egyptology at the University of Oxford, bequeathed his estate for the creation of “a permanent home or institute for the study of the ancient languages and antiquities of the Near East”.
Dr Schentuleit’s main research interests include Demotic and Greek papyrology, especially the socio-economic history of Graeco-Roman Egypt as well as topics like bilingualism, prosopography and onomastics.
