Imperial Landscapes: Empires, Societies, and Environments in the Ancient to Modern Nile Delta

  • Photos from the IL2017 conference can now be viewed online.

What was the significance of the Nile Delta within the successive empires it belonged to from the Pharaonic to the modern period? Complementarily, how did imperialisms shape the region’s socio-environmental dynamics in the longue durée? These are the two, complementary questions the conference Imperial Landscapes: Empires, societies, and environments in the ancient to modern Nile Delta proposes to examine.

This 2-day conference will take place on March 23-24, 2017 in the Department of Classics at the University of Toronto and will feature talks by sixteen historians, archaeologists and philologists from North America, North Africa, and Europe.

The event is open to all.
