Brill Publishers Signs Agreement to Release Harvard Egyptological Studies Book Series
Brill, the international scholarly publisher, has signed an agreement to publish a book series in cooperation with the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and the Department of Anthropology, both of which are in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. The book series is entitled Harvard Egyptological Studies.
The series will present scholarly publications in the field of Egyptology and will highlight, but is by no means limited to, aspects of the Harvard University-Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition (1905-1947). Invited topics include recent PhD dissertations, reports from excavations, specialized studies in ancient Egyptian language and culture, conference proceedings, and the history of the field of Egyptology.
The series will be edited by Peter Der Manuelian, Philip J. King Professor of Egyptology and Director of the Harvard Semitic Museum, and the first volume in the series will be available in 2015. "We are delighted with the University's new contribution to Egyptology, and hope that among other accomplishments it will bring renewed emphasis on the spectacular legacy of the Harvard-MFA Expedition," Manuelian said.
