Bukky Gbadegesin, Associate Professor in Art History at Saint Louis University, will join Steve Tamari, Professor of Middle East and Islamic Studies at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, to discuss Egypt’s international relationships including the migration of art, spiritual practice, language, cultural traditions, and ethnicities around the changing borders of this ancient culture.
