THE LATEST ISSUE OF 'EEF NEWS'

EEF NEWS is an email newsletter posted on the EEF mailinglist. It appears every week, on Thursday. Below you'll find the website version, which is also renewed after every following weekend (usually on Sunday evening).
For subscription to the EEF, the moderated scholarly mailinglist for mainstream Egyptology, see http://www.egyptologyforum.org or the link at the end of this page. The EEF list also has a daily digest option and a weekly digest option, and has monthly archives (digests and archives are all sorted by topic). There is no seperate subscription list for the NEWS alone, so if you are less interested in following debates, you may get the News by either visiting this website or by subscribing to the Weekly EEF Digest (meaning you'll get the NEWS on Thursday and one easily deleted Digest on Sunday).

Major news items which are of obvious interest for the list as a whole (like first-hand announcements of discoveries ad excavation reports) are best posted directly on EEF; smaller news bits (like announcements of lectures, website updates/reviews, email address changes etc.) are good candidates for being bundled in EEF NEWS.

The composition (...) comprises largely a dialogue between a deity, usually called “He-who-praises-knowledge” (possibly Thoth himself or a priestly master assuming the role of Thoth) and a mortal, “He-who-loves-knowledge”.

They had been removed from earlier, probably already dilapidated, buildings by Amenemhet I, founder of the XII Dynasty, and used in the construction of his own pyramid and funerary temple. With the passage of time both pyramid and temple fell into disrepair; these blocks became accessible, as they had been placed near the surface of the pyramid, in the lining of its corridors, and in the foundations of the temple. (...) Dr. Goedicke has divided the reliefs into two groups, those antedating, or probably antedating, Amenemhet I, and those contemporary with him or later. Only the first group is treated here. The importance of the Lisht Blocks is universally recognized by Egyptologists, and it is gratifying that these unique antiquities are, in this publication, becoming generally available." * CG 35001-35066: José M.

Egyptian medicine taught that an entombed woman faced a biological barrier to rebirth. The ancient Egyptians believed that in human reproduction it was The Man who created the fetus, and transferred it to the woman during intercourse. This ultimately made rebirth impossible for a woman alone. To overcome this perceived problem a priest ritually transformed a woman's mummy into a man long enough to create a fetus. The ritual for this transformation required representing a woman with red skin on her coffin--- the color normally assigned to a man. Furthermore, artisans inscribed the coffin with spells that addressed the woman in masculine pronouns for a priest to recite. The use of "male" color and strategically inflected language had the power to change her gender in the coffin. A woman later returned to her original female state and incubated herself for rebirth into the afterlife as a woman. (..)" URL URL info: English press report at URL "(..) The show demonstrates this concept with a coffin from the museum’s collection (around 1292-1190 BC), which portrays the deceased with male skin (conventionally red) on the coffin’s exterior—addressed by four gods using a masculine pronoun—and with female skin (conventionally yellow) on the mummy’s mask. Around 25 objects from the museum’s collection are on view, including pieces never before exhibited, like a collar with Atum, a male god who created the world all on his own. There is also a statuette of Atum holding his erect phallus in his hand, which is a feminine word in Egyptian. “This is the way [he created the world]—quite literally, masturbating,” Bleiberg says. Other objects, like two wooden statues, show that females are once again treated as women when they enter the afterlife, despite their portrayal with male attributes on their coffins. There are also statues of Osiris and Isis. (..)" URL info: English press report at URL * "Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt" date: cancelled??
