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 Weekly Digest option (meaning you'll get the EEF NEWS email on Thursday and one digest email of gathered regular mails 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.

URL "Im Gegensatz zur Rezeption der ägyptischen Kunst (»Ägyptomanie«) gehört die literarische Rezeption des alten Ägypten in der deutschsprachigen Literatur - sieht man von Thomas Manns Josephsromanen und von Rilkes Ägyptengedichten ab - zu den bislang vernachlässigten Gegenständen der Forschung. Zu diesen gehört auch Hans Henny Jahnns eingehende Beschäftigung mit dem alten Ägypten. Diese manifestiert sich in seinem Werk allerdings nicht in erzählerischer Form, sondern durch eingestreute Reflexionen. Dabei bearbeitet er vor allem Fragen, die um die ägyptische Architektur und ihre von ihm postulierte Vorbildfunktion für die Gegenwart kreisen sowie um Tod und Begräbnis, Tiergottheiten oder um den Inzest im Isis-und-Osiris- Mythos. Ihn interessiert dabei nicht das historische Ägypten, sondern die von ihm postulierte Gegenwärtigkeit dieser Themen als Teil seiner Ablehnung eines modernen Entwicklungs- und Fortschrittsglaubens.

(...) Es ist das Mißbehagen über die Vorläufigkeit so vieler Übersetzungen, die ihre Wurzel zwar auch andernorts hat, aber nicht wenig darin, daß man der Formenfülle des Ägyptischen vor allem auch übersetzungstechnisch so hilflos gegenübersteht und nicht nur die Verbalformen, sondern auch viele Satzarten und ihre Aussagenuancen seltsam einförmig und allgemein wiedergibt. (...) Mein Ziel will sein, Übersetzungen regelhafter und konsequenter zu machen; eine gewisse Vertrautheit mit ägyptischer Grammatik als Voraussetzung kann allerdings dem potentiellen Leser nicht erspart werden.

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. (..)"
