There will be a talk at Harris Manchester on Monday 29 May for students and staff within the University of Oxford about the intriguing Amarna Period of Egyptian history. This was the reign of pharaoh Akhenaten, who (as it turned out, temporarily) replaced worship of the old gods with the cult of the sun disk, relocated the capital, transformed Egyptian artistic conventions, and (probably) fathered Tutankhamun.
Our Research Fellow, Hana Navratilova, will host a talk by Dr Thomas Gertzen (FU Berlin & Universität Göttingen), who will speak on: "The king, my brother..." & "more nonsense written about it than any other period in Egyptian History" Historiographic Framing(s) of the Amarna Period
This will take place in the Maevadi Room from 16.30 to 18.00 and online, Teams link below:
