ROBYN PRICE presents virtual lecture on “Egyptian Smells.”

Robyn Price, PhD candidate at the Cotsen Institute, presented a virtual lecture on how sensory experience contributed to the overall organization of ancient society during a virtual lecture on April 10. She shared some of the research she’s done for her thesis covering the cultural importance of smelling in the daily lives of the ancient Egyptians and how smell tied to narratives of power and poverty. The lecture was presented by The Institute for Art and Olfaction, a non-profit devoted to creative experimentation with a focus on scent. Details on the event are available at
