Understanding African-centred Egypt

A talk by Dr Sally-Ann Ashton

Tuesday 24th March, 3pm

Kanaris Lecture Theatre, The Manchester Museum

Sally-Ann Ashton is curator of the Egyptian collections at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and has taught African Centred Egyptology in prisons for the past five years, developing a virtual gallery in collaboration with her students. Grounded in empirical research on the impact of teaching Egypt as part of Black History, this paper will highlight the key issues surrounding the presentation of Egypt as part of African culture and will explore the potential of museums to be agents of change.
