Department of Egyptology and Assyriology

We are very pleased to announce the first annual Parker Lecture in Egyptology,  Tuesday, September 26 at 5 PM in Petteruti Lounge of Faunce House.  Brown PhD ['09] Ramadan Hussein, currently at the University of Tubingen, will present "Tending to the Dead: Rites, Texts and Embalming Workshop at Saqqara".  

A pleasant reunion at the International Congress of History of Science and Technology in Rio de Janeiro.

Three Brown Students got Best Poster recognition at the Annual ARCE conference in Kansas City, MO: Christian Casey, Darcy Hackley and Martin Uildriks; meanwhile, two of three Best Papers went to Jen Thum and to Brendan Hainline (Brown BA, now working on PhD at Chicago). Well Done, Team!

Not surprisingly, Jen's talk, "Adventures in Living Rock Stelae" was extremely well attended, presented and received. Thank you, Jen.

Professor Matthew Rutz has been promoted to Associate Professor, with tenure, effective July 1, a well-deserved accomplishment which the department celebrated together with colleagues, friends and family on March 16. 

Julia Troche, PhD '15 has been awarded a tenure-track Assistant Professorship in the History Department at Missouri State University.  Well done, Julia, we knew you would do it.  Looking forward to a visit sometime!

Congratulations are due to Jessica Tomkins for having received an Interdisciplinary Opportunities Program award!
