D MAGAZINE PRESENTS THE RAMSES THE GREAT LECTURE SERIES

On conjunction with The Dallas Museum of Natural History Association. The Institute for the Study of Earth and Man at SMU, and the Dallas County Community College District, D Magazine is proud to present The Ramses the Great Lecture Series. This series of lectures will be presented throughout the Ramses exhibit (March 5 to August 27), and will bring authorities on some of the most fascinating topics in Egyptian history and culture to Dallas. The lecture series is an integral part of the Ramses exhibit. With it we hope to make this legendary event even more accessible to the community by providing additional avenues and opportunities for learning. For 15 years D Magazine has avidly supported and protected the progress and growth of the arts and humanities in Dallas. Our support of Ramses the Great is further acknowledgement of our commitment to the cultural future of our city. Please join us for one or all of these lectures. We promise a fact-filled adventure into the ancient world of the Pharaoh, a world filled with mystery, magic and imagination. A world in which the past can lead to a better understanding of the future.
