Lecture: She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia ca. 3400-2000 BC

Sidney Babcock, the Jeannette and Jonathan Rosen Curator and Department Head of the Department of Ancient Western Asian Seals and Tablets and curator of She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia ca. 3400-2000 B.C., provides an overview of the exhibition’s themes and highlights several key objects. The show brings together for the first time a comprehensive selection of artworks that capture rich and shifting expressions of women’s lives in ancient Mesopotamia. One remarkable woman was the priestess and poet Enheduanna (ca. 2300 B.C.), the earliest named author in world literature.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia ca. 3400-2000 B.C.
