Essays for the Library of Seshat: Studies Presented to Janet H. Johnson on the Occasion of Her 70th Birthday

Editado por Robert K. Ritner

Janet H. Johnson, profesora de egiptología de Morton D. Hull, es conocida internacionalmente como editora del proyecto Chicago Demotic Dictionary (CDD) (1976-presente), pero sus publicaciones e intereses van mucho más allá de la lexicografía. Estos van desde la filología y la historia social hasta la tecnología y la arqueología, pasando por los estudios de género y el matrimonio, la burocracia y la formación de escribas, la gramática egipcia de todas las épocas, así como las aplicaciones informáticas a la egiptología y las investigaciones arqueológicas del antiguo puerto de Quseir, en la costa del Mar Rojo, y el medieval Luxor. Este programa, de veintiocho colegas, estudiantes y amigos, refleja su gran variedad de intereses, con temas que van desde el Antiguo Reino hasta la Antigüedad Tardía.
