Aleksandra Hallmann: ‘Sartorial habits in Late Period Egypt.’ 

 

 Aleksandra Hallmann provides an analysis of clothing in Late Period Egypt (750 to 332 BC) through a comparison of representations on reliefs, paintings, and statues and the study of preserved textiles, supplemented by references in ancient texts. She shows the historical evolution of clothing revealing the influence of archaism and innovation, as well as how clothes reflect geography, ethnicity, and social roles. It provides some new criteria for dating and interpretation of representations through careful examination of changes in Egyptian fashion. 

 Aleksandra Hallmann receiveda PhD in archaeology from the University of Warsaw, Poland and is currently Assistant Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures, the Polish Academy of Sciences. As an epigrapher for the Epigraphic Survey of the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, she is working in the chapels of the God's Wives in Medinet Habu. She is also involved in fieldwork with the French mission at the Osirian chapels in Karnak North, and with the Polish mission at the temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari.
