È uscito “Company of Images: Modelling the Imaginary World of Middle Kingdom Egypt (2000-1500 BC)”, pubblicazione d’egittologia edita nella prestigiosa collana d’orientalistica OLA della casa editrice Peeters. A cura di Gianluca Miniaci, Marilina Betrò (Università di Pisa) e Stephen Quirke (UCL), il volume comprende gli atti dell’omonimo convegno tenutosi presso l’UCL Institute of Archaeology nel 2014 a conclusione del progetto di ricerca Marie Curie “EPOCHS” diretto da Miniaci. Studiosi di livello internazionale analizzano la percezione che gli Egizi avevano del mondo e il modo in cui lo codificavano in immagini attraverso lo studio della cultura materiale, dei relativi contesti archeologici e della società del Medio Bronzo (2000-1500 a.C.). L’editing finale della pubblicazione ha visto la collaborazione anche di alcuni studenti e dottorandi dell’Università di Pisa.
