In a recent Friends of ASOR podcast, I spoke with Uroš Matić over Skype about his recent Near Eastern Archaeology 79.3 article, “Gender in Ancient Egypt: Norms, Ambiguities, and Sensualities.” Interested in reading Matić’s full NEA article? Get it by becoming a Friend of ASOR below!
Matić’s article looks at new trends in the study of sex and gender in ancient Egypt, especially as influenced by gender and queer theories. He considers notions of binary gender, third gender, and same sex relations, with a final look at the endurance of folk tradition in Egyptian fertility practices.
