Upcoming virtual lectures in Egyptology!
« on: January 09, 2021, 01:38:54 pm »
Nothing I am presenting, but as I am on various lists relating to Kemet and Egyptology I thought it might be nice to share the notices I get for virtual lectures. If you come across something not listed here please share the information for people who might be interested. I will do my best to keep the talks listed here ones which are free or do not require some sort of membership so they have the widest accessibility possible.

The American Research Center in Egypt's schedule for open lectures (via Zoom) in January 2021. Preregistration is required and closes 24 hours before the event. All talks start at 1pm Eastern US time.

January 16: Anxieties about Race in Egyptology and Egyptomania, 1890-1960

January 23: Africa Interconnected: Ancient Egypt and Nubia

January 30: Does the Past Have a Future? The Work of the Theban Mapping Project

If you miss any they may wind up on the org's Youtube site: https://www.youtube.com/user/ARCEinEgypt

Premiering on Wednesday January 13th at 3pm is a podcast from the Oriental Institute on Demons (netjeri!) in Ancient Egypt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68ZXXYEX3Zo

Note I am not a member of either group, I just like to gather and share information like this.

I keep meaning to add to this thread because there have been several good talks happening this year. If you're interested, I recommend signing up for ARCE's newsletter above.

This is a lecture from last month called Backwater Puritans: Racism, Egyptological Stereotypes and the Intersection of Local and International at Kushite Tombos. It's a great discussion of how modern racism influences research into Kemet and surrounding contemporary cultures. Spoiler alert: there's a lot of racism at work in the field.

May virtual talks:

Saturday, May 20 is Egypt and the Mediterranean World from the Late Fourth through the Third Millennium BCE Conference.

Satyrday May 29 is Egyptian History and its Many Cuisines: An Exploration of Egyptian Food History. You will get a recipe for a drink to make up in advance and enjoy during the talk. (CN: recipe does mention adult beverages but includes non-adult beverage options.)
