PCMA Seminar: Learning by doing. Engaging with communities through heritage in Egypt

In October, the second edition of PCMA Seminars focuses on methodologies and practice of collaborative archaeology with case studies from Italy, Egypt and Poland. The second lecture in the “Heritage Month” series will be “Learning by doing: engaging with communities through heritage in Egypt” presented by Dr. Fatma Keshk ( Institut français d’archéologie orientale – Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw).

Abstract: “The last decade witnessed a remarkable rise in the field of heritage outreach in Egypt through the increase of interest to include community engagement activities in the components of many ongoing projects. In this lecture, Fatma Keshk reflects on her own field experience during the past fifteen years in planning and implementing projects of heritage outreach that are mainly based on the interaction with different groups of the local communities in Egypt with examples from Cairo, Aswan, Asyut, Sinai and Rashid. This lecture aims to highlight some of the learnt practices throughout close encounters with multiple stakeholders in the field of heritage outreach in Egypt, its challenges and future potential.”

The seminar will be held on Thursday, 13th October, at 11.00 am CET on Zoom.
