ARCE Lecture, Saturday, October 1, 4 p.m.,  at Ackerman Hall
In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, the American Research Center in Egypt, ARCE Atlanta, and the Carlos Museum present an evening with Dr. Betsy Bryan, the Alexander Badawy Professor Emerita of Egyptian Art and Archaeology at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Bryan’s talk, “Thebes from Amenhotep III to Tutankhamun: Altered, Abandoned, Mutilated, and Rejuvenated,” will explore the ways in which the city of Thebes, the home of national god Amun-Re, transformed during the 50 years between the reign of Amenhotep III and that of Tutankhamun (ca. 1375-1325 BCE).  A reception will follow on Emory’s historic quadrangle, weather permitting.

*Registration is required for this event at carlos.emory.edu/calendar.

About the Museum

Set in the heart of Emory’s campus, the Michael C. Carlos Museum, is a dynamic, interdisciplinary center for study of art and culture, with collections from Africa; ancient Egypt; Nubia, and the Near East; ancient Greece and Rome; the Indigenous Americas; and South Asia; as well as American and European Works on Paper.

Through our permanent collection galleries, engaging special exhibitions, and innovative programs for audiences of all ages, the Carlos Museum connects the past with present and the campus with the community.

Curators and faculty develop original exhibitions, engage in interdisciplinary research and teaching, and host touring exhibitions that complement our collections and support the teaching mission of the university. The museum’s conservators collaborate with staff, faculty, and students to conduct research and manage preventive care on the museum's varied collections. Museum educators reach across the museum, campus, and city to develop opportunities to engage the intellect and the imagination of university students and faculty, preK-12 students and teachers, and the larger Atlanta community.
