Tea with the Sphinx: Defining the Field of Ancient Egypt Reception Studies - 28-29-30/06/2018, Birmi


go to CALL FOR PAPERS

At the first roundtable of ‘Tea with the Sphinx: Defining the Field of Ancient Egypt Reception Studies’ in September 2017 a debate arose surrounding the idea of ‘truth’, ‘facts’, the ways in which knowledge is formed in the popular imagination, and how this relates to reception studies as a field. This prompted discussion surrounding how reception studies should define itself, but also, and just as importantly, how myth, incorrect ‘facts’, and changing knowledge can be valuable in constructing a picture of how the knowledge of the ancient past and cultures has been formed, used and re-used, contributing to an ever-evolving history of the representation of ancient Egypt and its cultural offshoots.
