Displaying Egypt - British Museum Annual Egyptological Colloquium
Geographischer Bezug: Ägypten
Berichtszeitraum: Frühgeschichte / Antike
"The representations of Egypt in public displays have, to varying degrees, reflected collecting/acquisition histories, disciplinary/institutional distinctions, historical/political/social contexts, aesthetic/design trends, economic drivers and audience expectations. Such displays have in turn helped inform and shape perceptions of Egypt past and present. Despite the growing focus on histories of Egyptology, and the study of Egypt and its heritage within the context of colonial and post-colonial histories, the subject of Displaying Egypt remains one rich with potential for further discussion and research."
