'Navratilova H, 2018: READING THE BONES IN MEMORY OF EUGEN STROUHAL. Anthropologie (Brno) 56, 2: 79-83'.
|Memorial volumes tend to be a frequent, yet perhaps somewhat disparaged, genre. Although the history of science
came out of its phase of distrust to biography mostly in the 1990s (Shortland, Yeo 1996), Egyptology is cautious
about biographies (Gertzen 2017: 189–192, Bednarski 2015), and therefore perhaps still more about memoirs
and memories, and memorial volumes. Memoirs and memories may be far too personal, and biographies may
turn into a mythologization of the subject, and memorial volumes stand out as a category of their own.|
