Non-legal Professional Experience

  • Nubian and Egyptology Laboratory Research Assistant, Museum of Anthropology at University of California Santa Barbara (2023)

    Kirra Hogan completed ceramic and artifact analysis as part of Sudanese Nubian archeological projects at the ancient Egyptian fortress of Askut (c. 1850-1100 BC) and Tombos (c. 1450-600 BC).

     Sudanese Nubian archaeological projects at the ancient Egyptian fortress of Askut (c. 1850-1100 BC) and colonial settlement and cemetery at Tombos (c. 1450-600 BC) provide a focus for understanding cultural entanglements and interaction between ancient Egypt and Nubia and the archaeology and social dynamics of small-scale settlements and households in the second and first millennia BC. Ceramic analysis is central to both projects, providing critical information for establishing regional and site chronologies, tracing cultural identity and interaction, activities in different areas, subsistence, and dietary preferences.

    Kirra Hogan’s contributions include: (i) sorting and analysis of ceramics and other artifacts, including data entry and statistics; and (ii) archaeological illustration, including drawings of pottery and objects, plans and architectural renderings, and site maps, including computer aided renderings and reconstructions.
