ARCE Events Find us
In Cairo, ARCE hosts weekly lectures on topics of historical and contemporary concern, as well as educational excursions to sites both within and outside of Egypt. ARCE offers short courses on subjects of interest to the wider public, such as Egyptology and Islamic art, and holds a series of symposia conducted in Arabic to facilitate exchange between Egyptian and foreign scholars.
The Center convenes an annual conference in the United States at which scholars are invited to present their research findings. This meeting provides an opportunity for ARCE members to hear about the latest scholarship on Egypt and network with professionals in the field.
ARCE's chapters, based in cities throughout the United States, sponsor diverse programs of their own, often in cooperation with local universities and museums.
ARCE's member institutions, which include virtually all North American museums and universities with research interests in Egypt, host exhibitions, educational courses, lectures, conferences, and symposia that offer the public the opportunity to advance their knowledge of the art, archaeology, history, politics, and religion of Egypt and the Near East.
