Postdoctoral Assistant Curator, Egypt on the Nile
Dr. Lisa Saladino Haney is the Postdoctoral Assistant Curator of Egypt on the Nile. She received her PhD in Egyptology from the University of Pennsylvania; she also holds an MA in Ancient Near Eastern and Egyptian Studies and a concentration in Museum Studies from New York University.
Dr. Haney has excavated in Egypt and Oman and her work has focused largely on the archaeology and material culture of Egypt’s Middle Kingdom (ca. 2030 – 1650 BCE), particularly the reign of Senwosret III. Her research utilizes archaeology, textual sources, and material culture to examine how the kings of Egypt’s 12th Dynasty chose to have themselves represented and why. She has also looked at Egyptian trade and interconnections with Near East and how various modes of visual representation were transmitted throughout the ancient world.
Dr. Haney is excited to be a part of the upcoming re-installation of the Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt, where she looks forward to working towards a more inclusive and honest interpretation of that space and to helping our expert team bring our amazing collection to life.
