This is the Fourth Annual Missouri Egyptological Symposium, and this year we are holding it at the Washington University in St. Louis. New this year, we will host our first keynote lecture: Dr. Rita Lucarelli (Associate Professor of Egyptology, University of California, Berkeley) will give a talk the Friday before the symposium (Oct. 14). on “Sun Ra, Afrofuturism, and the Reception of Ancient Egypt.” The symposium itself (all day Saturday Oct. 15) will include a dozen papers on ancient Egyptian religion and language, the reception of Ancient Egypt (i.e. in Midwest architecture and in Tolkien), Egyptology and Public History, and a session on learning from coffins and mummified remains.
