-Course Description: The Land of Pharaohs: this crucible witnessed the genesis of sedentary communities, urbanism, writing, the megamachinery of bureaucratic oversight and much more—the land along the Nile figures prominently in the modern imagination. From Neolithic beginnings to the development of written memory to the emergence and long-term maintenance of the territorial-state: this course is a general survey of the art and archaeology of ancient Egypt. A broad interest in the cities (from Memphis and Amarna), architectures (from the canonical temple complexes, pyramids to the common atmospheres of sleep and work), art, literature, and material culture will be balanced with a critical and creative appreciation of key themes in ancient studies: surveillance and governance, cosmopolitanism and movement, diplomacy and war, writing and visual media, death and commemoration.
