Important announcement! Dr. Fatma Ismail of Johns Hopkins University is offering to teach a full course on Middle Egyptian Grammar beginning on the 15th of June 2011. This is a rare opportunity and is basically the same course taught at Johns Hopkins which consists of intensive grammar study, reading of middle kingdom literature, such as the tale of a shipwrecked sailor, Sinue, wisdom literature and stories from the old kingdom. Anyone interested in learning the language and culture of Hieroglyphs can take the course.

There will be a charge to take this course and the text will be Middle Egyptian Grammar by James E. Hoch. Those interested should contact Dr. Fatma Ismail at fatmatalat at hotmail dot com.

You may be able to find more information about the course on the JHU website:
