Description

Gilgamesh 32-22-2"Great Voyages" Lecture
Steve Tinney, Associate Professor, Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania
Gilgamesh: Journeys to the End of the World
Gilgamesh was a figure of legend in ancient Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq) from as early as 4,500 years ago. The tales of his travels were not only stories of adventure in places no human had ever seen, but also reflections on questions of life and knowledge. In this lecture, Dr. Tinney recounts some of Gilgamesh's greatest journeys and revisits discussions about what they meant back then, as well as what they mean today. Individual lecture with advance registration: $5, general public; $2, Penn Museum members; $10 at the door based on availability. Free for students with college ID.
