Ancient Egyptian Culture and Society - AHIS280

This unit builds on AHIS170 and studies the ancient Egyptian civilisation during the Predynastic and Pharaonic periods (c. 5000 - 323 B.C.E.), providing a thematic approach to understand the major social and cultural developments of the Egyptian state. The unit examines topics such as social organisation, identity and personhood, methods of governance, gender and sexuality, modes of cultural expression, (re-)use of mortuary and cultic landscapes and ancient Egypt in the memory of the world.
