Climate Science in Egyptology
While many would not immediately associate the concept of climate change with the ancient world, studying how societies in the ancient past were impacted by, and adapted to, changes in climate can provide us with important insights into the relationship between societies and their environment.

In this second installment of our "We Need to Talk" series, Prof. Nadine Moeller, Prof. Joseph Manning and Dr. Jennifer Marlon will discuss climate science within the framework of Egyptology and the obstacles that arise when integrating the two. They will look at key climate events and patterns of the past, and explore how an interdisciplinary approach can help us better understand the role and impact of climate in ancient Egypt.

Interdisciplinary Egyptology introduces a new series of public events:

We Need to Talk: Contemporary Conversations in Egyptology.

The We Need to Talk series brings together leading specialists to discuss hot topics in Egyptological research, and in particular themes that relate directly to current global issues. The aim is to inform, educate, raise awareness, and to encourage deeper interdisciplinary engagement because – we need to talk.

As with all IntEg events, participation is free and open to the general public (via Zoom). Audience members will be invited to submit questions for discussion via social media before the event, and will also be able to ask questions to the experts during the live events.

IntEg In Conversation is presented in co-operation with The Egypt Centre, Swansea University.
