Abstract

The study of gender and sexuality is essential for an understanding of ancient Egyptian society, but these subjects have been slow to enter the mainstream of Egyptological research, and such work that has been done has, for the most part, been of the most basic, descriptive kind. But gender and sexuality are interrelated aspects of ancient Egyptian society that richly repay the application of the wide body of theoretical methodologies that have grown up in the wider study of these areas.
