Announcing Our Third Keynote Speaker: Dr.Johannes Auenmüller

March 2023

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Johannes Auenmüller will be our third keynote speaker at our 7th Sudan Studies academic research conference in May. Dr. Auenmüller has been a curator at The Museo Egizio, Turin since January 2020 and holds a PhD in Egyptology from Free University Berlin. With an impressive academic background, he has taught at several prestigious universities such as Berlin, Leipzig, Bonn, Munich, Turin, and Pavia, as well as in Münster, where he was a research assistant and member of the research center ‘Old Sudan’ before his current role at The Museo Egizio.

Johannes has participated in archaeological research excavations in Austria, Egypt (Dahshur and Elephantine), and the Sudan (Amara West). His main areas of interest include the sociology and regional prosopography of Pharaonic Egypt, the technology of metal production and bronze casting, and settlement archaeology and rock inscriptions in Nubia. Dr. Auenmüller also undertook research on bronze casting technology at the University of Bonn and about the social fabric of New Kingdom Nubia at The Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU Munich).

As an accomplished academic and expert in his field, Johannes will provide valuable insights and perspectives for our attendees, particularly for those interested in Egyptology and Nubian related fields. His keynote speech will cover the topic of "The Technology of Metal Production and Bronze Casting in Ancient Egypt", providing a unique opportunity for early career researchers to learn from one of the leading experts in the field.

With Johannes Auenmüller as our third keynote speaker, we are excited to offer our attendees an enriching academic experience at our upcoming conference. Early career researchers and scholars in related fields should not miss this opportunity to learn from and engage with one of the most prominent voices in Egyptology and Sudan Studies today. We look forward to seeing you at the conference in Naples or online!
