Students of Dr. Mary Howell’s hieroglyphics seminar have inferred that the renowned Egyptology professor’s favorite country is probably Egypt. “I mean I’m not 100 percent sure, but if I had to guess, I feel like Egypt would have to be in her top 5 favorite countries at least,” Bryan Reed ‘22 reported of Dr. Howell, who has devoted her life to the study of ancient Egyptian history, culture, and language, has spent a cumulative 7 years on archaeological digs near the tomb of Ramses II, and has made tremendous progress in the translation of cryptic Hieratic text. “I mean she talks about Egypt all the time, so she probably likes it.” Further reporting has uncovered that Dr. Thierry Béland, chair of the university’s French department, would have to consider French his favorite language, right?
