IoA Annual Conference: Forming Material Egypt

By Volkan L Akgunlu, on 15 May 2013

Forming Material Egypt

The Institute of Archaeology Annual Conference will take place this year on 20-21 May on the topic of ‘Forming Material Egypt’.

Archaeological finds from Egypt have been dispersed worldwide on a massive scale both through documented excavation and through gifts and purchases, by museums, archaeologists and others. The distribution of material has played a major role in forming contemporary attitudes to the Egyptian past.

In this conference, organised by the Material Cultures of Prehistoric and Dynastic Egypt Research Network, in association with the Egypt Exploration Society and the Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies, SOAS, Egyptian colleagues are invited to open and steer the discussions, by aiming for practical policy outcomes, and by prioritising the use and survival of material.

Start: May 20, 2013 9:00:00 AM
End: May 21, 2013 5:00:00 PM

Location: UCL Institute of Archaeology, Petrie Museum and SOAS
