Primary Instructor:

The focus of this class will be Cleopatra, queen of Egypt from 51 to 30 B.C.E. Perhaps the most fascinating, famous and notorious woman from the ancient world, she has been in people’s imagination ever since her death. In this course we will try to go beyond this popular image of Cleopatra, and, with the help of contemporary sources, try to reconstruct the historical, Egyptian Cleopatra, and discuss her role in contemporary Egyptian society. It is only when the Egyptian Cleopatra emerges that the Roman and later Western Cleopatra comes into focus.
