ARCE: Man Versus Wild? Rethinking the Interpretation of Human and Animal Representation in Egyptian Art

Presented by American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) at Bowers Museum, Santa Ana CA

Jan 11 2020
ARCE: Man Versus Wild? Rethinking the Interpretation of Human and Animal Representation in Egyptian Art

Monthly ARCE lecture @ Bowers

ARCE presents Dr. Jennifer Miyuki Babcock at the Bowers Museum to discuss the scholarly bias toward human representation in ancient Egyptian art. She’ll investigate why Egyptologists have taken for granted that animals demonstrate higher levels of artistic freedom despite the numerous examples that depict similar, seemingly spontaneous movement and behaviors of humans.

Dr. Jennifer Miyuki Babcock is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History of Art and Design at Pratt
