Please be sure to read all information below for the 2017 ARCE Annual Meeting prior to proceeding with your abstract submittal.



Please be informed that the vetting process has been revised for 2017. Read all of the updated information below prior to proceeding with a submittal.

ARCE members who wish to offer papers or panels and graduate students who propose a paper or poster for presentation at the 2017 Annual Meeting of ARCE in Kansas City, Missouri, should submit abstracts to the Review Committee electronically via this site not later than January 6, 2017.

A double-blind vetting process will be employed; neither reviewers nor submitters will be informed of one another’s identities. Abstracts should provide a brief overview of the topic, clearly state the research goals, and note the impact of the work in the relevant area of study (results should be relayed during the presentation itself, as appropriate, not necessarily in the abstract). In order to preserve the blind review component, text of abstracts should not include personally identifiable information (e.g. the submitter’s name).

The Review Committee is comprised of scholars in both ancient and modern Egyptian studies and will review submissions in the following categories:

  • Ancient Egypt

    • Archaeology (includes Archaeological Sciences; Bioarchaeology; Field Reports)

    • Language and Literature (includes Literature; Philology [grammar]; Text Studies)

    • Art and Artifacts (includes Art; Art History; Museum Collections; Objects)

    • History

    • Religion

  • Ancient Nubia

  • Conservation (includes Project Reports; Techniques; Training)

  • Historic and Modern Studies

    • Coptic Studies

    • Medieval to Ottoman Egypt

    • Modern Egyptian Culture and Society

  • History of Egyptology

  • Technological Advents/Advances
