Event Details

 

Join Elspeth Dusinberre, Associate Professor at the Classics Department of the University of Colorado Boulder for Authority and Autonomy in the Achaemenid Persian Empire.

The Achaemenid Persian Empire (ca. 550-330 BCE) embraced thousands of square miles and many different cultures. How did an entity this size govern in an age before rapid transit or instant communication? Textual, visual, and archaeological materials help reconstruct the intricate and sophisticated ways this empire governed its people and their responses to imperial presence, in a world founded by Cyrus the Great that was vast, complex, cohesive, responsive, and vibrant.

 

Come early and take a docent-led tour of the museum galleries at 6:30 pm.  No reservation necessary.  Please meet in the museum lobby.
