Elisabeth Steinbach-Eicke studied Egyptology, classical archaeology and Islamic studies at the Universität zu Köln. In 2010, she received a master degree with a thesis in the field of Coptic Studies about the Sahidic Life of Saint Pachomius. Her major research interests are Egyptian language from Old Egyptian to Coptic, linguistic expressions of perception and cognition, conceptual metaphor theory and semantic change. Since the beginning of 2012, she has been working on a PhD project entitled: “Klassifikation perzeptiver Verben und Konzeptualisierung im jenseitigen Raum anhand funerärer Texte des Alten Ägypten” (“Perceptive verbs and concepts of the netherworld in Ancient Egyptian funerary texts”). Within this project, she aims at gaining insight into the system and the semantic structure of Egyptian verbs of perception and cognition. This project is part of the research conducted by research group (C-1) Deixis and frames of reference: Strategies of perspectivation in language, text, and image.

Elisabeth Steinbach-Eicke participates in the PhD program Ancient Languages and Texts (ALT) at the Berlin Graduate School of Ancient Studies (BerGSAS).
