Current Research in Egyptology XIII
Held at the University of Birmingham in March 2012, this annual postgraduate conference encourages students from Bristish and international universities to present their Egyptological research in a friendly and encouraging environment.
This year’s CRE was the thirteenth since its beginnings at the University of Oxford in 2000, and was the second time since then that the University of Birmingham hosted. It attracted over 100 delegates from the UK and further afield, who all came to attend over 60 academic papers over four days. Both Dr. Martin Bommas and Dr. Tony Leahy of the Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity gave papers to open and close the conference respectively. Christopher Naunton, the director of the Egypt Exploration Society, and a University of Birmingham alumnus, gave a key note speech one evening.
The conference was accompanied by a busy schedule of networking events, such as receptions and an optional buffet with jazz band.
