Who Is Left Standing? A Marriage and a Department Are Wrecked, So Colleen Is the Only Egyptologist at Yale for Now

And who’s left standing?


When John Darnell agreed to a one-year suspension from the Yale faculty following numerous University policy violations, he left the Egyptology division of the Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations Department without a chair and with just one full-time faculty member — associate professor Colleen Manassa ’01 GRD’05, with whom he allegedly had the intimate relationship that led to his suspension.

Hat tip to John Brewer.

A little more eye makeup and she will look like one of the musician women on the walls of the Tomb of Nakht. Does her mummy know how she is behaving?

Nice way to get a promotion – sleep with the boss and get him fired.
If he violated the policy, why is she not also suspended? Presumably she knew about the policy, and the breaking of it, and did nothing to report it. I’m not sure that I see that much difference between what he did, and what she did. (Presuming that it was all consensual.)
