DR. SMITH GOES TO HOLLYWOOD

at Concordia University



Stuart Tyson Smith, Ph.D.
  • Professor and Chair, Dept of Anthropology, UCSB



Dr Smith’s specialties include ancient Egypt and Nubia. He will discuss his role as a movie consultant.

In 1993 Smith took a break from the world of academics and became the Egyptology Consultant on the MGM movie "Stargate," advising script, scenes and costumes and recreating spoken ancient Egyptian for about half of the movie's dialog. In 1998 he consulted on the script and reconstructed spoken ancient Egyptian for the Universal remake of "The Mummy" and the same for the sequel "The Mummy Returns."

Refreshments will be served after the meeting.
