Archaeology of Ancient Egypt

This course surveys the art, architecture, and material culture of ancient Egypt from the prehistoric cultures of the Nile Valley to the end of the New Kingdom (ca. 4000-1000 BC). Topics include: the development of monumental architecture (e.g., pyramids), expressions of kingship, the construction of gender identity in art, and Egypt's role as a conduit for trade between the Mediterranean, western Asia, and Africa. This course also considers the legacy of European imperialism in the construction of ancient Egypt, particularly in regard to race and ethnicity.
