UAB, HOST OF THE 2ND IBERO-AMERICAN CONGRESS OF YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN EGYPTOLOGY (II CIJIE)
From June 26th to 29th, tne 2nd Ibero-American Congress of Young Researchers in Egyptology (II CIJIE) will take place, organized by doctoral and master’s students from the UAB, with the support of the Department of Studies in Antiquity and the Middle Ages and the Institute for Ancient Near Eastern Studies at our university.
This virtual conference will bring together emerging researchers in Ibero-American Egyptology and aims to serve as a forum for networking, debate, and showcasing the current dynamism of this discipline in various countries across Ibero-America. With this edition, the UAB aims to contribute to the consolidation of this event, further promoting Egyptological research in our countries and languajes, and creating networks for scientific discussion among researchers in the early stages of their academic development.
Over the course of four days, more than 50 presentations will be distributed across seven sessions, covering topics ranging from Predynastic to Roman Period: Archaeology and Art, Gender and Society, History, Religion and Funerary Practices, Digital Humanities, Collections, and Literature and Philology. The conference will also feature an inaugural and closing lecture, as well as three other keynote speeches. Download the book of abstracts here.

TRIP TO EGYPT UAB 2023
IEPOA porposes a cultural trip to the land of the Pharaohs for this summer. There will be two groups, one in Spanish and one in Catalan. This trip is offered in the framework of training programs in Egyptology at the UAB, both classroom-based and online (official master’s degree and PhD, postgraduate diploma, MOOCs, and specialization courses), but is open to all audiences and requires no previous knowledge. On the other hand, the trip aims to support IEPOA’s Egyptololgical research.
Group in Spanish – 16-29 July 2023
EGYPTOLOGICAL EVENTS 2022 AT THE UAB
As is well known, this year 2022 we are celebrating two Egyptological anniversaries of great significance and international media impact: no less than 200 years since the decipherment of the Egyptian hieroglyphs and 100 years since the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
The IEPOA of the UAB wishes to join in the celebration of these events, which marked milestones in the history of Egyptology and the human sciences in general, with two commemorative academic events that will take place on the same dates as the commemorated events (or one day apart, in the case of the second one).
In addition, this year marks an “internal” Egyptological milestone at the UAB: the 30th anniversary of the first Egyptology classes at our university, within the framework of the Master in Oriental Studies: Egyptology and Assyriology, taught by the IEPOA from the academic year 1992-93. Since then, Egyptology has been present uninterruptedly in the educational offer of our university.
The Vice-rectorate for Communication and Culture of the UAB, in collaboration with the IEPOA, the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, and the Department of Ancient and Middle Ages Sciences, is also preparing a commemorative exhibition on all these anniversaries entitled Beyond Tutankhamun, which will be inaugurated in November.
