Proposals for Scholars’ Colloquium papers will be accepted in the fields of Egyptology, Anthropology, Classics, Fine Arts, Archaeology, Nubian Studies and related fields on any topic connected with pre-dynastic, pharaonic, Hellenistic, Roman or Coptic Egypt, but must represent an original contribution to the field. Presentations may be given in either English or French. Papers may not exceed 20 minutes in length.
Since a limited number of proposals will be accepted, papers will be vetted by committee. Interested scholars should send a title and brief abstract of their proposed paper to the Scholars’ Colloquium Coordinators at [email protected] or [email protected]. Please note that only proposals submitted in electronic format [i.e. via email] will be considered. Abstracts must not exceed 350 words in length.
The SSEA/SÉÉA is also holding its 47th Annual Symposium on NOVEMBER 4th, held in conjunction with the Colloquium. The topic for this year’s Symposium is Sakkara: Where the Pyramids Were Born. It will also be held in hybrid form, both In Person and live via Zoom. More information about the program for the weekend will be forthcoming.
We look forward to receiving abstracts from scholars from around the world and invite your submission with eager anticipation. This will be a memorable colloquium. Papers accepted for the Scholars’ Colloquium are not limited to the topic of the Symposium, and no preference will be given to proposals based on topic. Please also note that the SSEA is soliciting proposals for the Scholars’ Colloquium only. All participants in the Scholars’ Colloquium will be expected to pay the appropriate registration fee in advance.
This year the Sally L. D. Katary Travel Scholarship is available to Student Members of the SSEA. This award is available to aid scholars wishing to travel to Toronto to present at the 2023 SSEA Scholars’ Colloquium. The intent of the award is to aid scholars who would not otherwise have funding to travel to the event. The selected individual will have their registration paid, along with $300 to defray costs associated with traveling to Toronto to present. Please indicate your wish to be considered when submitting your Abstract.
Call for “virtual” posters
SSEA/SÉÉA Annual Meeting
November 3rd-5th, 2023
The Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities/Société pour l’Étude de l’Égypte Ancienne is now inviting proposals for “Virtual Poster” contributions for its Annual Meeting, to be held NOVEMBER 3rd – 5th, 2023 at Toronto, Canada.
Similar to last year. we are seeking “virtual poster” proposals for a Poster Session. Proposals will be accepted from organizations, projects, expeditions, graduate students and senior scholars in the fields of Egyptology, Anthropology, Classics, Fine Arts/Art History, Archaeology, Nubian Studies, ancient Coptic Studies and related fields. They must represent an original contribution to the field. Proposals will be posters re-imagined as a series of slides for Zoom, with an introductory slide and a final slide for footnotes, references and acknowledgements/thanks, to total no more than 10 slides. Either narration or music are suitable as accompaniment. Posters may address any aspect of ANY topic connected with pre-dynastic, pharaonic, Hellenistic, Roman or Coptic Egypt. However, poster presentation is best suited to material with a strong visual impact, rather than a great reliance on text. Posters may be in either English or French. (Ideally, posters will be available in a bilingual version.)
Poster abstracts will be published in the conference abstracts booklet. Poster slides may be uploaded in PDF form to the SSEA/SÉÉA website. There will also be a limited number of virtual poster positions available for notices of scholarly projects or organizations in Egyptology, Nubian Studies, Coptic Studies, Near Eastern Studies or Ancient Mediterranean Studies.
Since a limited number of proposals will be accepted, virtual posters will be vetted by committee. Interested scholars should send a title and brief abstract of their proposed poster to the Scholars’ Colloquium Coordinators at [email protected] or [email protected]. Please note that only proposals submitted in electronic format [i.e. via email] will be considered. Proposals must not exceed 350 words in length.
The final deadline for receipt of proposals for virtual posters is September 15th, 2023.
