Description

Ancient Egyptian scribes produced a diverse selection of literature. Existing works include elements of drama, mystery, horror, adventure, and even romance. One group of texts that focused heavily on romance is the so-called Love Songs, which survive in almost 100 examples. Join Theresa Tiliakos for a discussion of the history, composition, and significance of the Love Songs.
Speaker: Theresa Tiliakos, NELC PhD student, University of Chicago
