Presented by Stacy Davidson

For many, Egypt inspires thoughts of pyramids, tombs, and temples, grandiose displays of elite power. Egyptian civilization may seem too distant to relate to modern circumstances, but universal themes of love, strife, worry, and death found in Egyptian writings show a world not dissimilar from our own. How can I go on when my world has been turned upside down? Should I leave ungrateful children out of my will? What profession should I choose? These questions are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago. This presentation explores these familiar struggles as documented in Egyptian literature, including love songs, legal documents, and the first recorded labor strike.
