Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs ANTHRO X402

Course Description

Gain familiarity with the most common hieroglyphic signs and their elementary grammar using a
textbook based on “The Shipwrecked Sailor,” a 4,000-year-old tale of adventure and magic. You relate
these language exercises to Egyptian history and religion. Get an introduction to royal and divine
names frequently encountered by travelers and museum visitors. Study the simple formulae likely to
be seen on funerary objects on exhibit. Each class session includes discussion and recitation, and
concludes with a brief slide lecture highlighting some aspect of writing and literature in ancient
Egypt.

Background:

Lubitsch’s last German film before his emigration to the US was thought lost until a few years ago.
Painstakingly restored from footage salvaged in several countries, The Loves of Pharaoh (“Das Weib
des Pharao”) reveals the great director at a critical point in film history as well as the state of
Egyptological knowledge on the eve of Howard Carter’s discovery. Massive sets, detailed props,
meticulously restored color tints and a modern orchestral recording of the 1922 score recapture for
today’s audiences the magic of classic film in the silent era.

With English subtitles.
