Unwrapping Ancient Egypt

October 19, 2019

Strong Hall, Missouri State University
900 S Holland Ave
Springfield, MO 65897 United States


Unwrapping Ancient Egypt is a two-part event on October 19, 2019 at Missouri State University’s campus in Springfield, Missouri. First, from 9am-4pm, the Second Missouri Egyptological Symposium will bring together nearly a dozen Egyptologists local to the Missouri region for an entire day of exciting presentations of new research, all relating to the theme of “Interconnectivity.” Interconnectivity is broadly understood to include interconnections between methodologies or research approaches, between ancient peoples in antiquity, and between the ancient past and today. Second, an outreach event, sponsored by the AIA, will invite Missouri (and nearby) area teachers to Missouri State for an educators’ workshop, from 12-2. During this workshop, we will address the challenges inherent in teaching ancient history, and ancient Egypt more specifically, in our K-12 schools, and presenters at the symposium will share their favorite resources and curricular class plans. Both events are free, but registration is requested. Visit our website for more details and registration.
