Practical Magic—Powerful Objects from Ancient Egypt

July 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Since we are unable to welcome you into the museums at this time, we are bringing our experts and collections to you in an online series, Art Study Center Seminars at Home.

Heka, the ancient Egyptian word that we translate as “magic” today, was neither marginal nor deviant in the Egyptian world. It was an important part of life and death, healing and protection. In this seminar, curatorial fellow Jen Thum will explore objects that are the subject of new research and discuss how they put magic to work during life and the afterlife.

Led by:
Jen Thum, Inga Maren Otto Curatorial Fellow, Division of Academic and Public Programs
