Oct 9 – Tour of “Narrating Nubia: the Social Lives of Heritage”
October 9 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm
North Campus Duderstadt Gallery (2281 Bonisteel)
Join Bailey Franzoi (MSP21), Shannon Ness (MSP15), and Geoff Emberling (Research Scientist, Kelsey Museum of Archaeology) for a tour of “Narrating Nubia: the Social Lives of Heritage.” “Narrating Nubia” is a project funded by the UM Humanities Collaboratory that focuses on developing ways to move beyond the colonial past of archaeology and cultural anthropology. The meanings of Nubia in ancient and modern Egypt and Sudan are explored. The exhibit includes four main sections: a presentation on the ongoing archaeology in Sudan, an animated film about Egyptian Nubia, a podcast, and an online classroom program.
Register in advance for the tour (space is limited).
