Afternoon Mini-Seminar
Foreigners in Ancient Egypt: Context and Culture
This program delves into the question of what it meant to be a foreigner in Ancient Egypt. Following a general background discussion, guests hear about two distinct types of foreigners, the Medjay and the Keftiu—each of which played an important role in ancient Egyptian society and held special status within the Egyptian worldview. Speakers include Dr. JJ Shirley, Managing Editor, Journal of Egyptian History; Dr. Kate Liszka, Postdoctoral Fellow, Princeton University; and Dr. Beth Ann Judas, President, American Research Center in Egypt–Pennsylvania Chapter. The exploration continues with a tour of the Egyptian Galleries, focusing on images that speak to the place of foreigners in ancient Egyptian society. Sponsored by ARCE-PA. Admission: $20; $15, Penn Museum members; $10, ARCE-PA Members and students with ID.
