Oriental Institute, Chicago IL
Oriental Institute
resented by David P. Silverman, Eckley B. Coxe, Jr. Professor of Egyptology, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania; Curator in Charge of the Egyptian Collection, Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The Book of the Dead (the modern term for the ancient Egyptian Book of Going Forth in the Day) is usually described as a roll of papyri with inscribed funerary texts that often included illustrated vignettes. From the New Kingdom on, it became part of the equipment Egyptians wanted for their Afterlife. The spells, however, were not limited to papyri and appear on coffins, figurines, jewelry, amulets, chests, shrines, wrappings, shrouds, tomb walls, etc. The lecture focuses on this latter group and its use of these magical texts.

Ben Austen - "High Risers: Cabrini-Green and the Fate of American Public Housing"
Seminary Co-Op Bookstore, Chicago IL
Seminary Co-op Bookstores
High-Risers braids personal narratives, city politics, and national history to tell the timely and epic story of Chicago’s Cabrini-Green, America’s most iconic public housing project. Built in the 1940s atop an infamous Italian slum, Cabrini-Green grew to twenty-three towers and a population of 20,000—all of it packed onto just seventy acres a few blocks from Chicago’s ritzy Gold Coast. Cabrini-Green became synonymous with crime, squalor, and the failure of government.
