Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin offers an online Lecture Series “Conceptualizing Bodies in Ancient Egypt” next summer semester.

In this digital event featuring different international speakers every week (see program and abstracts in the
booklet), interested listeners can gain insights into ongoing research on the body and corporeality in Ancient
Egypt and Egyptology.

The topics range from gender roles, violence and punishment, eroticism and sexuality, illness and disability to specific
body techniques. Textual, pictorial, and archaeological sources are consulted as a material basis. The focus is on emic and etic perspectives on as well as conceptualizations of the body in Ancient Egypt in its manifestations as subject, object or medium. The talks will cover whole and fragmented bodies of humans, kings, deities or demons, taking different methodological and theoretical approaches into account.

INFO: Thursdays, 6.00-7.00 p.m. (CET), April 28 – July 7, 2022 via Zoom (you can find the Zoom-link in the booklet)
