About the Speaker

Dr. Kathlyn (Kara) Cooney is Chair of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA. Specializing in craft production, coffin studies, and economies in the ancient world, Cooney received her PhD in Egyptology from Johns Hopkins University. In 2005, she was co-curator of Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
