To celebrate the move of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Women's Studies Program to the newly renovated Lane Hall, the Kelsey Museum will mount a mini-exhibition called "Gender in the Ancient World," focusing on how research on gender can illuminate the past. This exhibition will feature objects from "Women and Gender in Ancient Egypt," the 1997 exhibition cosponsored by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Kelsey Museum, along with additional artifacts relating to new research by U-M faculty. The gilded Egyptian mask fragment (KM 4651) pictured above is ambiguously gendered, probably because only partially preserved.
