Ancient Egypt has long held the fascination of the world outside of the hallowed halls of universities and research institutes, but this can lead to the promulgation of misconceptions and ‘pseudo-science’. This panel explores how we can ensure that researchers can communicate to a wide audience with academic integrity, but in a way that maintains general interest and encourages a deeper appreciation and understanding of the ancient past.
Panellists for this session will be:
• Dr Yasmin el Shazly (Moderator), The American Research Centre in Egypt
• Prof. Salima Ikram, American University in Cairo
• Ms. Fatma Keshk, Freie Universität Berlin
• Dr. Chris Naunton, Independent scholar
• Prof. Kara Cooney, UCLA
Event will run as a live Zoom Webinar only. It will not be recorded.
The IntEg Panel Discussion series is presented in partnership with The Egypt Centre, Swansea University.
