Women on the Nile in the “Golden Age” of Travel

February 6, 2020,7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

People have been traveling to Egypt for millennia, but the “Golden Age” of tourism for Westerners began in the mid-19th century. Because many of the travelers were men, we focus much more on them than on women who took holidays on the Nile. Their experience was different than that of their male counterparts.

In this talk, Kathleen Sheppard, Associate Professor in the History and Political Science Department at Missouri S&T, will focus on many of these women and their experiences traveling to Egypt. When should they go? Who should they travel with? What could they do and see? What could they expect to find? And the evergreen question: What should they pack? Join us for an adventure up and down the Nile during the Golden Age of travel.
