Breasts – Sexy, Sacred or Secular by Jane Akshar
Hi, my name is Jane Akshar, and I just completed a 4 year course with Manchester University and this is my dissertation.
Mine was the last year to undertake the full four years and to have spend an entire year researching, studying and writing their 8,000 – 10,000 word dissertation.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it, I learnt so much and found so many great books. There was great support from the university with our tutor giving feedback on draft chapters and content. I can’t recommend the courses from Manchester Uni enough
My topic was chosen after seeing this in a Luxor street, it made me wonder what attitudes the Ancient Egyptians had to the female breast.
I did analysis of love poetry, pornographic papyrus and rude graffiti.
I looked at the portrayal of the breast in art, both 2-D and 3-D. Goddesses both tree and cow, suckling Pharaohs and the dead.
Breast cancer was explored as well as the use of wet nurses.
And I didn’t leave out the men either, man boobs get looked at!
The most interesting thing I learned was the impact of breast feeding and I discuss this in my conclusion.

This is a ‘fair trade’ product. By buying an e-book from me, you are contributing to the Egyptian economy. It enables us at Flats in Luxor to keep employing our staff during quiet months in the tourism calendar, which is a huge help to them and their extended families, especially at this time.
A warning to all students everywhere, don’t copy this. You will be found out and done for plagiarism. They now have electronic checkers that go through all submissions and if they find a quote from someone else that is not acknowledged you are in big, big trouble. It is just not worth it and anyway part of the fun is finding out for yourself and broadening your own knowledge. Also if you are thinking about doing an e-book yourself, do what I did and check with your university what their rules on copyright are.
