Course Description

“Ancient Egypt.” It evokes the pyramids at Giza and the Step pyramid at Saqqara (among other fabled sites). However, the modern appearance of these sites is quite different from their look in antiquity or even 50 years ago. Over four sessions, I will narrate excerpts from traveler’s accounts and guidebooks (17th - 20th century) in the public domain to Giza, Saqqara, and other sites on the modern traveler’s bucket list. I will also dive into the Eurocentric/imperialist/colonial background that undergirded the development of Egypt’s modern tourist industry.
