Research Interests: 

Casondra is interested in immersive environments for teaching history/archaeology – especially buried women’s history – in embodied and interactive ways. She would like to further research Deir el Medina, the Village of the Workers in Middle Kingdom Luxor. Deir el Medina that was home to the scribes and artisans who created the tombs in Egypt’s Kings Valley and Queens Valley. It was the site of the first labor strike in recorded history, it was the production site of tantalizing love poetry that might have influenced The Song of Songs in the Old Testament, and it is a site rich with intersecting lines of myth, magic, and medicine.
