SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
The Egypt Exploration Society, The Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan, British Museum and University College London invite the submission of papers for presentation at the Third British Egyptology Congress (BEC3) to be held in September 2010 in London.
The aim of the Congress is to provide all those involved in scholarly research in Egyptology in the UK with a forum to discuss their work and to share ideas, not only with each other but with a wider audience as well. The emphasis is very much on the informal: contributors will be required to talk for 20-25 minutes on research undertaken since the last event in March 2008, regardless of what stage it has reached. The papers will not be published but summaries will be made available online.
The sponsors welcome contributions from all UK-based scholars involved in academic research in Egyptology, regardless of affiliation or status. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and should take the form of an abstract of 100-300 words in length, in MS Word (.rtf, .doc or .docx) or pdf format, which should be sent with a covering note including the contributor's name, institutional affiliation (if applicable) and status / job description (student, lecturer, curator, independent researcher etc.) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 5 pm, Monday 1 February 2010.
In the event that we are unable to accommodate all contributors some will be invited to present their work in poster form. Provisionally, registration fees will be as follows: Speakers ¬£20, students. Payment is not required at this stage; a full announcement giving details of fees for speakers and non-speakers will be circulated in Spring 2010.
Finally, we are delighted to announce that the keynote lecture on the evening of Saturday 11 September will be given by Dr Mark Lehner, and will be followed by a reception in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery at the Museum.
