Egyptology Scholar in Residence Program at CSUSB
The History Department is proud to announce the endowment of the W. Benson Harer Egyptology Scholar in Residence program. Each year, CSUSB will bring in a prestigious visiting scholar to teach a class on Ancient Egypt for the Department of History, Anthropology, and/or Art. The scholar will also work with Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) and its renowned collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts to bring the study of ancient Egypt to life for our students. This visiting professor will also share her or his exciting work with the greater Inland Empire community in an event for the public. We are very pleased to announce that our first W. Benson Harer Egyptology Scholar in Residence is Dr. Jessica Tomkins from Brown University. In Winter 2019, she will teach History 452, Ancient Egyptian History: Origins to 1700 BCE. This class will allow her to share her personal research and knowledge of the Egyptian Old Kingdom, a time of pyramids and god-kings.
