Who's who at the conference 26th October

The second session of the morning continues with a paper from Prof. Stuart Tyson Smith  of the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA.  Prof. Tyson Smith will be discussing 'Colonial Gatherings: The Presentation of Inu in New Kingdom Egypt and the British Imperial Durbar, a Comparison'

Through an integration of archaeological and historical data, the paper explores the political, ideological and social dynamics underlying these important events through a comparison of the better documented British colonial assembly with its ancient Egyptian counterpart, demonstrating how these gatherings created tableaux of self and other that inscribed an imagined political and cultural hierarchy into the memories of participants and onlookers. If you would like to read the full abstract of Prof. Tyson Smith's paper please feel free to visit our confirmed speakers page.
