ARCE FELLOWSHIP ALUMNI - WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Forty-five Fellows and Research Associates have been hosted and supported by ARCE during the past five years. These American pre- and postdoctoral scholars and professionals are affiliated with universities, museums and research institutions worldwide. Despite differences in disciplines and historical points of reference, ARCE Fellows share something in common: they are living in today’s Egypt - the modern Middle East. They return to their institutions and communities richer academically and capable of addressing public opinion about a country and region in transition. Follow some of ARCE’s more recent alumni here >>
MUSEUM OF ISLAMIC ART PREVIEW
On Wednesday June 15, 2016 ARCE staff along with officials from the American Embassy in Cairo and USAID were treated to a preview of the Museum of Islamic Art by its Director Dr. Ahmed El-Shoky.
ARCE, with funding from the US Embassy and USAID were among the first to mobilize in support for the museum after the bomb blast in January 2014. We have been working with the Ministry of Antiquities to restore the facade of the building that the museum is housed in and hope to see the inauguration of the Museum of Islamic Art very soon. Check out the video on ARCE's Facebook page >>
