Third lecture of series examining the changing representations of women from ancient Egypt: Old Kingdom – Elite and her work force

About this Event

Through the looking glass (I): Representations of women from ancient Egypt

How women were depicted throughout Pharaonic history reveals much about their roles and perceived qualities. This lecture series will chart their changing representations over time. Using a series of case studies, we will consider what we can learn from these images, while being aware of the limitation of the data. Gender is only one aspect of identity, class, age, and ethnicity also underpin life experiences. How these factors combine with gender will be examined.

This ticket is for lecture one

Week 3 – 10th Feb

Old Kingdom – Elite women and their female work force

A handbook will be provided and articles and links sent out after each lecture as appropriate.
