The Egyptology Graduate Conference will take place at Brown University on November 11, 2017. Conference participants will be required to arrange their own travel and accommodation. Please feel free to get in touch if you need help planning your trip.
There are a few spaces available for presenters who want to say with Brown grad students. These accommodations are free, but space is limited. Please email us directly to let us know that you would like to stay with a student. Spaces will be assigned by lottery.
The conference has reserved a number of rooms at the Hampton Inn in downtown Providence. The conference rate is $189 per night. Feel free to contact us if you require help booking at this rate.
Rooms permitting, the Dean Hotel in downtown Providence also provides rooms at an affordable rate.
