Free Public Lecture with Fayza Haikal, Professor of Egyptology, The American University in Cairo
Egypt’s recorded history spans six thousand years and is therefore one of the longest and best known in the world. Today, Egyptians practice several religious, artistic, and social traditions that can be traced to ancient Egypt, demonstrating the power and longevity of cultural memory. Drawing on research in archaeology, Egyptian art, writing, and culture, Fayza Haikal will examine Egyptian society’s cultural expressions from antiquity to the present, focusing on language, spirituality, superstitions, funerary traditions, and folklore.
Presented by the Harvard Semitic Museum. Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
