Diplomacy and Buffer States in the Near East (Lecture 10)

Professor of Egyptology and director of the Yale Egyptological Institute John C. Darnell delves into the history of Ancient Egypt from the Predynastic Period through the end of the New Kingdom. In these lectures, Professor Darnell shows that, despite common perceptions, Pharaonic Egyptian civilization existed within a multicultural society subject to disparate geological environments-and that its strength lay in the balancing of contrasting groups and goals. The first lecture is on the rediscovery of ancient Egypt after the French expedition; the remaining lectures cover the history from the beginning of the African neolithic through the arrival of Alexander the Great (with a brief epilogue on the Ptolemaic period). The lectures are totally up to date as of five years ago, and cover many of the most recent discoveries, some of which I was not aware of. The early lectures were especially interesting.

Petra Goedegebuure | Luwian Hieroglyphs: An Indigenous Anatolian Syllabic Script

Luwian Hieroglyphs: An Indigenous Anatolian Syllabic Script from 3,500 Years Ago The Oriental Institute Lecture Series, organized by the University of Chicago, brings notable scholars from around the country and abroad to present on new breakthroughs, unique perspectives, and innovative research applications related to the Ancient Middle East. Cuneiform writing on clay became wildly popular among the governing elites of the Ancient Near East. Although some societies, such as Egypt, only used cuneiform for their international correspondence, the Anatolians additionally adopted cuneiform for domestic use to write Hittite, Luwian, Hattic, and several other languages. But they also developed their own hieroglyphic script for inscriptions in Luwian only. Among other topics, this lecture explores where it came from, how widely it was used, and who could read it. Presented by Petra Goedegebuure, Associate Professor of Hittitology, Oriental Institute, University of Chicago. Thank you for your interest in the Oriental Institute Lecture Series.
