Art usually reflects the world but in Ancient Egypt art reflected a very particular idealized world. To understand Egyptian Art, it is necessary to examine its purpose as it was created for practical purposes – for worship, for daily use, or to serve needs either in the present life or the next life. This lecture will examine sculpture, relief, painting, and objects of daily life that were produced for more than three millennia of Egyptian culture. 

Dr. Rasha Soliman is an associate professor of ancient Egyptian archaeology at Misr University for Science & Technology in Cairo, Egypt. This academic year, Lewis & Clark College is hosting her as a Fulbright Scholar-in- Residence, her second Fulbright grant. Dr. Soliman is an expert in Egyptology. More specifically, she specializes in Ancient Egyptian Archaeology with emphasis on the Theban necropolis, and she is the author of the book Old and Middle Kingdom Theban Tombs 2009, in addition to many other scholarly articles. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Rasha Soliman to our campus.

This presentation is conducted through the Fulbright Scholar Program’s Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF). OLF enables Visiting Scholars to share their research interests, speak about their home country, and exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty, and community organizations. Through these lectures, universities forge relationships with the Fulbright Scholar Program, Visiting Scholars, and the Visiting Scholar’s home and host institutions.

Sponsored by WSU International Programs & WSU Global Studies.
