Seminar: Ancient Egypt featuring the collections of the NC Museum of Art

Official announcement from Program in the Humanities Adventures in Ideas Weekend Seminars

In collaboration with the North Carolina Museum of Art

Join us in Raleigh in a wonderful setting where we’ll explore the world of ancient Egypt from its earliest developments as a civilization up through its status as a Roman province. Our speakers will introduce you to the many eras, artifacts, and cultures of the land through lectures on the Egyptian collection at the Museum, the impact of Egypt on Alexander the Great and his successors, and the role Egypt played in the Roman world and imagination. After our speakers conclude we’ll have a chance to tour the holdings at the museum itself. Sign up for this seminar and you’ll be sure to leave with a command of centuries of history and artistic achievement.
