Jasmine Day Interview with Steven Armstrong, F.R.C.

Dr. Jasmine Day was born in 1972 in Perth, Australia, and received her PhD in Cultural Anthropology from The University of Western Australia in 2002. A book based on her thesis, The Mummy’s Curse: Mummymania in the English-speaking World, was published by Routledge in August 2006. She combines a general knowledge of Egyptology (especially funerary customs and mummification) with an anthropological perspective on both the culture of ancient Egypt and modern cultures’ understandings of ancient Egypt (i.e. Egyptomania). She specializes in the study of Mummymania, the Western fascination with, and representations of, Egyptian mummies. She visited the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum on July 31, 2007, and we were fortunate enough to have some time for a conversation on her favorite subjects!
