Building a New World Order: Hellenistic Monarchies in the Ancient Mediterranean World

Sponsored by The Pennsylvania State University

AIA Society Event: Central PA (University Park)

Friday, April 24, 2015 - 12:00am - Saturday, April 25, 2015 - 11:00pm

Location:
Foster Auditorium, Penn State
University Park, PA 16802
United States

The department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies at Penn State invites contributions for the Tombros conference on Hellenistic monarchies that will take place on April 24-25, 2015. This academic event will explore the socio-political and cultural landscape of the Hellenistic states with a particular focus on the interactions between old and new, between the new elites and the established political and socio-economic structures. How did Hellenistic rulers respond to pre-existing structures and institutions? How did indigenous populations cope and interact with their new leadership? How did these political and social shifts affect the economy of the ancient Mediterranean world? How did art serve, resist, or comment on the new status quo? 



Confirmed speakers include Prof. S.M. Burstein (Professor Emeritus, Department of History, California State University), Prof. A. Erskine (Professor of Ancient History, University of Edinburgh), Prof. J.G. Manning (William K. and Marilyn M. Simpson Professor of Classics and History, Yale University; Senior Research Scholar, Yale Law School), and Prof. R. Strootman (Associate Professor of Ancient History, University of Utrecht).

This mini-seminar delves into the question of what it meant to be a foreigner in Ancient Egypt. Following a general background discussion of the topic by Dr. JJ Shirley, Dr. Kate Liszka and Dr. Beth Ann Judas will present their work on two distinct types of foreigners, the Medjay and the Keftiu respectively.  
 
These particular groups of foreigners each played an important role in ancient Egyptian society and held special status within the Egyptian world-view. The day will also include a tour of the Egyptian Gallery at the Penn Museum that focuses on images of foreigners and what they do – or do not – tell us about the place of a foreigner in ancient Egyptian society.
 
Speakers:
 
Dr. JJ Shirley: University of Pennsylvania/Journal of Egyptian History (Brill); Visiting Researcher/Managing Editor
 
"What it Meant to be a Foreigner in Ancient Egypt"
