Janet H. Johnson, Morton D. Hull Distinguished Professor of Egyptology, is internationally known as
editor of the Chicago Demotic Dictionary (CDD) project (1976–present), but her publications and
interests extend far beyond lexicography. These range from philology and social history to
technology and archaeology, including gender studies and marriage, bureaucracy and scribal training,
Egyptian grammar of all periods, as well as computer applications to Egyptology and archaeological
investigations of the late antique port at Quseir on the Red Sea coast and medieval Luxor. This
Festschrift, by twenty-eight colleagues, students, and friends, reflects her wide variety of
interests, with topics ranging from the Old Kingdom to Late Antiquity.
