New England Chapter (Boston) Find us
The New England Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt exists to inform and educate chapter members and the general public about the culture and history of Egypt from ancient through modern times. Our primary activities are lectures that bring leading scholars and specialists in Egyptology and Coptic and Islamic studies to Boston and the surrounding New England region to present their work in an accessible forum, to share their experiences, and to interact with the interested public. Other chapter activities can include larger thematic workshops, tours and organized exhibition viewings, and social events.
