Politics, Partage, and the Papyri

Brendan Haug
Thursday, June 8, 2017
1:00-2:30 PM
Hatcher Gallery Hatcher Graduate Library Map
The subject is a difficult and contentious one: the ownership status of the excavated papyri from Karanis acquired by U-M between 1924 and 1935. Professor Haug will be discussing the relationship between U-M and the Egyptian Antiquities Service during and after the excavation years and the ways in which our possession of excavated papyri was affected by nationalist unrest in Egypt.
