2000–2001 Annual Report

Janet H. Johnson

Janet H. Johnson spent much of her time during the past year working on the Demotic Dictionary Project (see separate report) and on the Annotated Egyptian Readingbook Project (see separate report). She also attended the annual meeting of the American Research Center in Egypt (for which she serves on the Board of Governors) held in Providence, Rhode Island, in April 2001 and was invited to present a discussion on Egyptian and Demotic lexicography at a special session on ancient Near Eastern lexicography organized at the Midwest Branch meeting of the American Oriental Society, held at Notre Dame in February, 2001. Her publications during the year include both traditional print articles, such as “What’s in a Name?,” which appeared in Structuring Egyptian Syntax: A Tribute to Sarah Israelit-Groll, and technologically newer electronic publications, including the third edition of Thus Wrote ‘Onchsheshonqy, her teaching grammar of Demotic Egyptian. During Winter and Spring Quarters she served as acting chairman of the Technology Oversight Committee of the Division of the Humanities, which helps keep the Oriental Institute tuned into what is going on technologically in the most closely related part of the University. She also began a three-year term as a member of the Council of the University Senate. During the year, she was appointed a Member of the Groupe de Recherches “Réseau International d’études et de recherches achéménides” of the Collège de France.
