A Citizen of Nowhere
Jaroslav Černý, Egyptologist (1898-1970): A Journey through the Twentieth Century
The transnational Egyptologist Jaroslav Černý was born in 1898 in Pilsen. He developed a remarkable scholarly network that connected Czechoslovakia, United Kingdom, Egypt and France. His intellectual development is an achievement in crossing boundaries and developing identities. When he died in 1970, he was part of a major strive for recording of Egyptian monuments organized by the Egyptian authorities and specialists in cooperation with UNESCO, as well as a member of the UK academic community.
