These lectures are free although registration for each talk is required.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Egypt Centre’s Annual Conference will now go digital. A number of the speakers due to attend the conference have kindly agreed to give their presentations via Zoom.

Rather than have them over one weekend we have decided to host two presentations per week. Please keep in mind that for many of the speakers this technology is new, so we apologies for any glitches encountered!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Please make sure to check your junk email.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ken Griffin at k.griffin@swansea.ac.uk
