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.

An Examination of its Fiction, Genre and Ideology, The Institute of Archaeology & Antiquity, College of Arts & Law, University of Birmingham, 2013 - 80 pp. - pdf-file (0.7 MB) URL "P. Pushkin 127 has previously been labelled a literary text but it is not entirely clear why it is literary and what its purpose is, its meaning. The text presents itself as a letter from an exiled man, Wermai, to the Royal Scribe in Residence, Usermaatre-nakht. It details the various injustices Wermai has suffered and asks for help. This thesis first examines the impact of this source if it were taken at face value. Once this premise is established it uses modern theoretical techniques derived from literary criticism to work out the extent of P. Pushkin 127’s fictionality and general ‘literariness’. Finally it considers the meaning of the text in light of such critical analysis and examines the implications of modern perceptions on explaining Wermai’s sufferings. The overall aim isto define the importance and application of P. Pushkin 127 as a source and to investigate its ‘literary’ character in a more theoretical and holistic approach." * Online thesis: Susan Thorpe, Social aspects in ancient Egyptian personal correspondence, The University of Auckland, 2016 - 199 pp. - pdf-file (1.2 MB) URL "This study will look at a selection of private letters from the Old Kingdom to the Twenty-first Dynasties under the topic headings of Complaints, Religious affairs and personnel, Military and police matters, Daily Life.

An Intertextual Study of Narrative Motifs from the Middle Kingdom to the Roman Period, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen, 2013 - iii, 214 pp. - pdf-file (1.8 MB) URL "The present dissertation is a diachronic study of cultural identity and self-presentation in ancient Egyptian fictional narratives. Cultural identity implies notions such as customs, practices, values and world-views that are implicitly or explicitly expressed in fictional narrative. The texts that are included in the study span from the Middle and New Kingdoms (c. 2055-1650 BC and 1550-1069 BC), and Ptolemaic and Roman periods (332-30 BC and 30 BC- 395 AD) and the material is analyzed within a framework that addresses “narrative traditions,” which is the transmission of cultural identity in the narratives through time. In light of the diachronic perspective of the study, I focus on four principle motifs of Egyptian narratives: priests, kings, warriors, and women, and explore the literary presentations of these within an historical and intertextual context." * Digitized book from the "Digitale Sammlungen" of the "Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek.

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 f) Kelsey Museum of Archeology University of Michigan, 434 South State Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1390.

Prior to their move the artefacts were carefully studied and cleaned, and this led to an unexpected discovery: one of the terracotta cones contained not only the expected ibis mummy but also a linen bundle in which was wrapped an unknown, yet unrolled papyrus scroll. Following comprehensive preparatory work and tests, the papyrus was carefully unrolled in early 2014. The fully extended scroll is 250 centimetres long and contains writing on both sides. References to dates in the text allow us to date it to the Late New Kingdom (c. 1100 B.C.), and the text also mentions the scribe’s name. The ibis mummy’s terracotta cone in which the papyrus was found is about seven centuries younger than the scroll, which begs the questions why and when the papyrus was placed in the vessel. Did this already happen in antiquity? Or only much later, when the terracotta cone travelled from Egypt to Vienna via Trieste in the nineteenth century? The exhibition explores these and many other fascinating questions connected to this amazing recent find." [Cp. this Annual Report 2014 by the Museum, pp. 16-18: URL "(..)
