Egypt: from Ancient Mummies to the Arabian Nights
Professor Elizabeth Weiss will talk about her year living in Cairo where she attended the American University of Cairo and as a student of anthropology visited Pharaonic sites, learned of ancient Egyptian building materials scattered throughout Cairo, and got to partake in travels to fossil primate locations. Professor Weiss's talk will be a personal and scholarly journey through her time in Cairo and she will explore how her experience has molded her anthropological career, including teaching a mummy course, looking beyond mummies and into skeletal remains, and incorporating her experience into her research and teaching.
