Naguib Kanawati (born 1941) is an Egyptian Australian Egyptologist and Professor of Egyptology at Macquarie University in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Career[edit]

A native of Alexandria, Egypt, with a Master's degree in business administration, Kanawati later emigrated to Sydney, Australia, where he obtained his second Master's degree and Doctorate, both in Egyptology. He subsequently joined the academic staff of the university, as Lecturer in History (1980–1983), and Associate Professor in Egyptology (1984–1990).[1]

From 1990, Kanawati became Macquarie University's first Professor in Egyptology and holds a Personal Chair in that subject. He was instrumental in the formation of the Rundle Foundation for Egyptian Archaeology in the late 1970s and was the founder, in 1989, of the Australian Centre for Egyptology, which coordinates all Australian excavations in Egypt with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Kanawati's research interests focus on the Old Kingdom period of Egypt, its burial customs, art history, and socio-political development. He has directed numerous excavations and epigraphic expeditions, at sites including the entire mountain of El-Hawawish (in excess of 800 Old Kingdom and First Intermediate Period rock-cut tombs), Quseir El Amarna, El Hagarsa (near Sohag), Deir El Gebrawi, Giza, as well as the Unis and Teti pyramid cemeteries at Saqqara.

Other interests[edit]

He is also the current Vice-President (and member for many years) of the Parish Council of the Melkite Catholic Eparchy Church of Australia and New Zealand; Vice-President, Eparchy Pastoral Council; the Chairman of its Aged Care Committee; Chairman of the Melkite Board of Study; and former Chair of its Finance Committee. He was the founding Committee Member of the Holy Saviour Community School, continuing on the committee since 1997. He was made a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 1997.[1]

Honours[edit]

On 1 January 2001 he was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal "for services to Australian society and the humanities in the study of prehistory and archaeology".[2] In the Queen's Birthday Honours awarded on 11 June 2007 he was awarded the Order of Australia "for service to education through research and the promotion and advancement of the study of Egyptology, and to the community."[2][3]
