Registration is open for the “Sudan Studies Research Conference”

Registration for the Sudan Studies Research Conference, which will be held at the National Museum in Warsaw on September 4, 2021, opened on July 1. Among the organizers of this year’s conference is the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology of the University of Warsaw.

The conference, initiated by Durham University Sudan & Egyptology Study Group, is devoted to issues related not only to archaeology, but also to the study of contemporary Sudan and its people.

Due to the epidemiological situation, this year’s conference will have a hybrid format. Some of the speeches will take place in the Cinema Hall of the National Museum in Warsaw and will be broadcast live on the Internet (4.09.2021). Participants who will not be able to come to Warsaw will give their presentations online (5.09.2021). In total, there will be over 40 papers presented by researchers from five continents. The conference will also feature ten scientific posters. The full conference program will be announced soon.

Participation in the conference is free for the audience both on-site and on-line. The only limitation may be the number of participants in the on-site sessions scheduled in Warsaw, which will depend on the restrictions in force in September (information will be sent to all registered participants a few days before the conference).

The inaugural lecture will be given by Assist Prof. Dobrochna Zielińska (Faculty of Archaeology, University of Warsaw): “Between Byzantium and Africa. Understanding Medieval Nubian Culture through its Art”.

Three plenary lectures are also scheduled to be delivered by Prof. Julia Budka (LMU University of Munich, Germany), Dr. Daniel Antoine (British Museum, UK) and Dr. Fawzi Hassan (University of Neelain, Sudan)
