Throughout this course, we will look at what’s myth and what’s researched fact in Egyptian history and culture through Zoom lecture with slides, videos, objects, and discussion. These talks show how artists, craftspeople, architects, and poets created art and writing to give one a better understanding of Egyptian culture and values. An overview of the Egyptian dynasties will be provided with focus on major moments from early times through to modern. Each lecture is broken into themes with focus on dynastic life and its impact on modern art and architecture in Egypt today.
