Fifteen years after a psychotic crisis on the China Sea has changed his life, Alex, a sophisticated and sensitive schizophrenic, is at a crossroads. Because of his grandmother’s insistence, who wishes to die peacefully, he finally agrees to look for a lover.
His encounter with a psychotic young woman gives birth to an incandescent and passionate relationship that gradually crosses her emotional boundaries. As the troubled waters of the Chinese Sea come back in him, he starts to isolate himself more and more, at the risk of being sucked into the unfathomable abysses of paranoia. An intimate, disturbing and wonderful odyssey.

PART I – THE NEXT GENERATION IN EGYPTOLOGY: YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN ACTION

Session 1: Egypt of the New Kingdom

9.30 to 9.50 a.m.

Un regard sur le capital social en Égypte ancienne : l’exemple des artisans du bois à Deir el-Medina au Nouvel Empire (1550-1069 AEC)

By Julie Desjardins, master’s candidate, Department of History, UQÀM

The village of Deir el-Medina was home to a settlement of craftsmen who laboured on the pharaohs’ tombs during the New Kingdom. This artists’ community left behind numerous items of correspondence, notes, registers, stories and texts that offer insight into the daily lives of its members. Through a socioeconomic analysis of the living conditions of wood craftsmen, we will see how social capital manifested in Der el-Medina over 3,000 years ago among the people belonging to a particular trade.

9.50 to 10.10 a.m.

Le rôle des femmes royales étrangères dans les alliances matrimoniales diplomatiques à la XVIIIe dynastie

By Véronique Lacroix, master’s candidate, Department of History, UQÀM

The purpose of the proposed study was to analyze the nature of power held by foreign princesses who married pharaohs during the 18th Dynasty. The analysis focuses chiefly on the reigns of Thutmose III, Amenhotep III and Akhenaton and aims to determine both whether these princesses held a degree of political influence and precisely what their position and status was upon arriving in Egypt. The resulting conclusions are based on an analysis of the Amarna Letters and the tomb of three Egyptian princesses discovered by Herbert Eustis Winlock in the 1940s.

 10.10 to 11.10 a.m.

Le thème de la fuite en Égypte du Nouvel Empire : terres étrangères, plateaux et autres lieux de refuge

Guillaume Bouchard Labonté, doctoral candidate, Department of History, UQÀM

Documentary sources from the New Kingdom do not lead us to believe that there were many refugee Egyptians, despite that they had ample reasons for wanting to flee: the brutal repression of the pharaonic regime, untenable social pressures, and even conjugal violence. In this discussion, we will examine several cases of actual and fictitious escapes. We will also endeavour to determine whether the silence around the sources masked a desire among some inhabitants of the Nile Valley to seek exile for themselves.

 10.30 to 10.50 a.m.

 Session 2 – Egypt from the pyramids to age of cultural hybridity

 11.10 to 11.30 a.m.

Les Textes des Pyramides dans l’œil de l’analyste

By Cloé Caron, doctoral candidate, Department of History, UQÀM / Université Paul-Valéry, Montpellier III

Inscribed for the first time in the pyramid of Unas (about 2356 to 2323 BCE), the last king of the 5th Dynasty, the Pyramid Texts are said to be the oldest religious writings in the world. However, they are by no means simplistic. On the contrary, the formulas contained in the Pyramid Texts are vastly complex. By examining a selection of text depicting the primordial god, Nun (Naunet), this presentation aims to shed light on the various parameters that an analyst must examine in order to interpret them correctly.

 11.30 to 11.50 a.m.

De patronne dynastique à mère de la monarchie : Bastet durant la XXIIe dynastie (943-729 AEC)

Perrine Poiron, doctoral candidate, Department of History, UQÀM / Université Paris-IV Sorbonne

At the mention of the name Bastet, the first image that comes to mind is often of a seated cat scanning the horizon. However, this is not the form in which the deity generally appeared to the Egyptians. In fact, she belonged to a group of so-called “dangerous” goddesses, as she was the incarnation of the Uraeus, which defended the supreme god, Re, against his enemies. More than a lion-headed apotropaic divinity, Bastet became an integral figure in pharaonic ideology, particularly during the Third Intermediate Period (1076-723 BCE). Patroness of the 22nd Dynasty, she took on the role of mother of the monarchy. Through a study of various documents, we will present the main storyline of her ascension in pharaonic ideology during the 22nd Dynasty.

11.50 a.m. to 12.10 p.m.

La vie mouvementée des statues de Taharqa à Ninive

Jessica Bouchard, doctoral candidate, Department of History, UQÀM / Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster

It is safe to say that a statue’s function is culturally constructed and thus inextricably linked to the context in which it was made and erected. In order to understand the meaning of a statue, we seek to learn the circumstances in which it was produced; analyzing the relevant references and symbols of its contemporaries and clarifying its place within a group of similar objects. But all too often, we impose a static functionality on the object under study, forgetting that it exists in a time beyond the moment of its creation and that, as such, it may have lost or gained new memorial significance. Thanks to the notion of a cultural biography of objects, it is possible to envisage the various purposes a statue could be invested with over the course of its life, or even after its “death.” To illustrate our point, we will examine the case of statue bases of the 25th Kushite dynasty pharaoh Taharqa (690-664 BCE), which were uncovered in the ruins of the Assyrian palace in Niniveh.

This symposium is the fruit of a collaboration between several institutions and organizations: The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Department of History of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), the Society for the Studies of Egyptian Antiquities and the Association des études du Proche-Orient ancient.

PART II: EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE TIME OF THE PHARAOHS

Session 1 – From Amarna to Montreal: Issues of identity

13h45-14h30

Deux reines-pharaons avant Toutankhamon : Ce qu’en dit l’art

By Valérie Angenot, Professor, Department of History, UQÀM

We have known for some fifty years that a queen succeeded Akhenaton on the Egyptian throne. After a half-century of scholarly debate, analyses and hypotheses concerning the identity of this queen, researchers have come to two possible conclusions. The largely Anglophone Egyptology community considers that Nefertiti took advantage of the political status she had firmly established during Akhenaton’s lifetime to seize the reins of power upon his death. For its part, the Francophone Egyptologists maintain that the succession occurred in the traditional manner – despite the gender of the future Pharaoh – bringing to power the eldest child of the royal couple, Princess Meritaton.

All things being equal, there are some inconsistencies in these hypotheses that remain unresolved to date. Both required their respective authors to “knit” certain facts together to make them hold. Artistic productions and artifacts have also periodically been brought into the discussion but often on an intuitive basis, without applying a rigorous or convincing analysis.

In this lecture, we propose to insert into the debate artworks as bona fide witnesses to the historical events that took place in this era. We will submit them to the rules of semiotic analysis that govern human visual works, in general, and Egyptian visual works, in particular, to extract their meaning and resulting praxis. In so doing, we will examine whether a possible third conclusion might exist, the only one that is actually supported by the body of epigraphic and figurative elements: that two queens jointly reigned as pharaohs between Akhenaton and Tutankhamun.

 2.30 to 3.15 p.m.                               

Egyptian mummies at the Redpath Museum : Unravelling the history of McGill University’s collection

By Barbara Lawson, former Curator, World Cultures at Redpath Museum, McGill University

The Redpath Museum’s collection includes three human mummies from ancient Egypt and several animal mummies. A selection of these were examined using high-resolution 3D imaging, which provided information on how they were mummified, their osteobiographical details (age, sex, stature, etc.) and their state of preservation. Although by no means the first radiographic examination for most of these mummies, the current investigation provoked interest in their Montreal and McGill histories over the past century. A general overview of data resulting from recent and earlier studies will be presented, along with insights regarding the mummies’ acquisition and public display in the 19th and 20th centuries.

15.15 to 15.35 p.m.

Break

Session 2: Construction and deconstruction: The power of the word and the Earth

15.35 to 4.20 p.m.

« Être bien chez soi ». L’architecture domestique et l’urbanisme au temps des pharaons

By Jean Revez, Professor, Professor of History, UQÀM

To most people, the architecture of pharaonic Egypt is synonymous with majestic tombs and temples. This notion has largely been fuelled by archaeology, which has long been singularly focused on unearthing the most spectacular of religious monuments. Nonetheless, alongside these stone constructions, domestic architecture and urban planning are key research fields for gaining a picture of ancient Egyptians’ daily lives. What historical sources do these professionals rely on to study the age-old private residences, and what parameters must be established for their operation? How does one go about reconstructing the physical aspects of a home to better understand how its rooms were used? What can the layout of cities, towns and villages tell us about spatial perception in ancient Egypt? These are some of the questions that will be discussed in this presentation.

 4.20 to 5.05 p.m.

Contes fantastiques et gestes du roi. La tradition orale dans l’Égypte ancienne

Ronald Leprohon, Professor, Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, University of Toronto

The power of the spoken word was widely recognized in ancient Egypt. In addition to fantastic epic stories of the king, this presentation will comment on autobiographical accounts, the format of which evokes the oral genesis of the genre.

Presented in original English version.

FIDDLER: A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES is the origin story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving. It includes interviews with the Broadway show’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning lyricist Sheldon Harnick, legendary producer Hal Prince, original cast members, such as Austin Pendleton, as well as rare archival footage of choreographer Jerome Robbins. The documentary also features Lin-Manuel Miranda, Harvey Fierstein, Fran Lebowitz, and Chaim Topol, who starred in the film adaptation.

Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h 5
 

Presented in original French version with English subtitles.

Fifteen years after a psychotic crisis on the China Sea has changed his life, Alex, a sophisticated and sensitive schizophrenic, is at a crossroads. Because of his grandmother’s insistence, who wishes to die peacefully, he finally agrees to look for a lover.
His encounter with a psychotic young woman gives birth to an incandescent and passionate relationship that gradually crosses her emotional boundaries. As the troubled waters of the Chinese Sea come back in him, he starts to isolate himself more and more, at the risk of being sucked into the unfathomable abysses of paranoia. An intimate, disturbing and wonderful odyssey.

Thursday October 17 2019 - 14:00
Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
 

Presented in original English version.

FIDDLER: A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES is the origin story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving. It includes interviews with the Broadway show’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning lyricist Sheldon Harnick, legendary producer Hal Prince, original cast members, such as Austin Pendleton, as well as rare archival footage of choreographer Jerome Robbins. The documentary also features Lin-Manuel Miranda, Harvey Fierstein, Fran Lebowitz, and Chaim Topol, who starred in the film adaptation.

Once a month, Art in Motion invites people who are 65 and over to join a relaxing moment of new discoveries.

This workshop is a chance to discover and explore close connections between works of art, physical movement and the creative act. Participants will start by taking a walk through the museum’s collections.  Next, some simple dance exercises will gently awaken our bodies to the benefits and pleasure of moving. The workshop will end with a short artistic creation that will draw awareness to the body and gestures involved in creative acts.

Passes are distributed from 10 a.m. on the day of the activity, at the Museum ticket counter.

The drop-in workshop is our most flexible family activity: come by any time between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., and enjoy some creative quality time together.

The Ancient Egyptians believed in the protective powers of magical amulets. These charms were also thought to be an important medium in harnessing supernatural powers. Inspired by the exhibition Egyptian Mummies, create your own charm out of Fimo and infuse it with magic through the power of positive thinking.

Duration : 2h

When in the fall of 1737, Paris welcomed Telemann for an eight-month stay, the city was bustling more than anywhere else in Europe with musical activities and aesthetic rivalries. What better stimulation then for the German guest and his French hosts, for whom national styles were either clashing or mingling. This is the bountiful source tapped by Arion’s new Artistic Director Mathieu Lussier, who will conduct a program teeming with rich orchestral colours, with prominent touches of winds and the virtuosic recorder of Vincent Lauzer.
