Brown’s Egyptology & Assyriology Graduate Conference (EAGC) provides an arena for any Egyptology and/or Assyriology (under)graduate student to present their research in a relaxed but academic environment to foster the professional development of young scholars and bring emerging Egyptologists and Assyriologists into conversation with one another. As a rising professional in your field, EAGC provides a neutral space for you to practice your presentation skills without academic pressures such as those at more formal venues and operates as a forum to receive constructive feedback and spark discussion about the research you present and the way you present it. Not only will you improve your own abilities, but also be given a chance to meet and interact with students from different universities and nationalities to increase your professional as well as your personal network and learn about each other’s new and exciting research.
