Bright as the Sun: A look at the lives of women in ancient egypt

A lecture by Dr. Heidi Saleh

Wednesday, April 27, 12:00 pm - 1:30pm

Ancient Egyptian women enjoyed more rights and freedoms than their counterparts in Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome. And even though women played a pivotal role in ancient Egyptian society, they have been traditionally overlooked and/or downplayed by modern scholars. Join us in a lecture that explores the lives and occupations of a wide spectrum of ancient Egyptian women from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. We will examine women Pharaohs as well as female servants and work to understand their full complexity as leaders and workers as well as wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters.

In recognition of the 40th Anniversary of the Vincent Chin case, you are invited to a film screening of Vincent Who? and Q&A conversation with Director/Producer Curtis Chin. Vincent Who? recounts the 1982 murder of Vincent Chin, a Chinese American who was murdered in Detroit at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments, by two white autoworkers who blamed Chin for the loss of their jobs. Vincent Chin’s killers were given a $3,000 fine and three years probation but no jail time. Outraged by this injustice, Asian Americans around the country united for the first time across ethnic and socioeconomic lines to form a pan-Asian identity and civil rights movement.
