ARTH 224 The Encyclopedic Museum

Encyclopedic Museums, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, have large collections representing cultures across the globe and spanning human history. This class will look at encyclopedic museums through their Egyptian and Near Eastern collections. We will investigate how such collections are formed, the ethics of collecting archaeological materials from Egypt and the Near East, and the controversy behind several famous pieces from the bust of Nefertiti to the Elgin Marbles.
