The Bible and the Ancient Near East
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

For over 2,000 years, the Hebrew Bible has been considered sacred scripture by Jews and Christians. It also contains traditions held in high regard by Muslims. One of the most influential books ever written, it is also one of the most important artifacts of ancient Middle East. In what ways does the literature of the Bible look like other contemporary literature? Is there any evidence outside of the Bible for the events depicted in it? Did the biblical writers share a worldview with other cultures of their time? In this lecture, we will explore the Hebrew Bible and its world, and trace the new discoveries and revolutionary approaches to biblical scholarship that have emerged through the research of organizations like the Oriental Institute.

Presented by Joey Cross, a Ph.D. student in both Egyptology and Hebrew Bible studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago.

Discover the Modern Benefits of Ancient Self-Healing
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

When we get sick, our tendency is to go to the doctor first. Often, the medicines we are given cause side effects that may help the original symptoms, but make us sick somewhere else.

In this presentation we will learn these simple techniques to help heal ourselves by understanding the energy channels (meridians) in our bodies:

  • Simple stretches that open, strengthen, and heal internal organs
  • Accumulation and circulation of energy through integrating all 12 meridian channels
  • Release of stress through Tapping, an Acupressure Technique
  • Deep connection between body, mind, and spirit to experience how our bodies are designed to achieve greater health, happiness, and peace

Carole Liss has been practicing Body & Brain Yoga for over eleven years and is a master instructor and healer. As the owner of Body & Brain Yoga in Bloomingdale, she has personally overcome health challenges. Her mission is to help all members of her community find greater health, happiness, and peace in their lives.

Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

After President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke in the fall of 1919, First Lady Edith Wilson began to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. Mrs. Wilson had little formal education and had only been married to the President for four years; yet, in the tenuous peace following World War I, Mrs. Wilson assumed the authority of the office of the president for 17 months, becoming, as one senator put it, "the presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man."

Building the Pyramids
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Egypt and Nubia were home to many pyramids built over a span of 2,000 years, but it is the three pyramids belonging to Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure on the Giza plateau that continue to hold the fascination of the world. Building these monuments required the recruitment and organization of large work forces along with their support staff. This talk will highlight the most recent research regarding their construction and the impact it had on ancient Egyptian society. Exciting excavations in the shadow of the Giza pyramids at Heit el-Ghurab over the last 20 years have revealed the city from which these construction projects were administered. In 2015 a most unbelievable discovery was made when a team working along the Red Sea coast at a site called Wadi al-Jarf found the discarded journals and papers of a man who worked acquiring resources for building the Great Pyramid for Khufu at Giza. Never before has so much been known about the daily life of the pyramid builders.

Presented by Joey Cross, a Ph.D. student in both Egyptology and Hebrew Bible studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago.
