I am a research associate at the National Fund for Scientific Research (Belgium) and principal investigator of the ‘Crossing Boundaries’ Project at the Université de Liège. I specialise in New Kingdom written material, and the sources from Deir el-Medina are thus of utmost importance to my work. In recent years, my work has centred increasingly on the written materials that stem from this community’s close-knit network of scribes and workmen. Within this area of research, I have four main foci. From a socio-linguistic perspective, I analyse the impact that this network of scribes had on the language (technically, ‘registers’) that they used in their written productions. On the basis of grammatical discussions of different sources, I aim to enhance our understanding of the contexts in which ancient Egyptian texts were produced and used. I also attempt to track the habits of individual scribes in Deir el-Medina on the basis of palaeographical, orthographical, grammatical, and phraseological habits. Finally, I am involved in the publication of different types of hieratic sources stemming from the Deir el-Medina community, which are now scattered in various collections around the world.
