Art Study Center Seminar at Home: Practical Magic—Powerful Objects from Ancient Egypt


Friday, July 10, 2020, 11:00am to 12:00pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

Since we are unable to welcome you into the museums at this time, we are bringing our experts and collections to you in an online series, Art Study Center Seminars at Home.

Heka, the ancient Egyptian word that we translate as “magic” today, was neither marginal nor deviant in the Egyptian world. It was an important part of life and death, healing and protection. In this seminar, curatorial fellow Jen Thum will explore objects that are the subject of new research and discuss how they put magic to work during life and the afterlife.
