The Advanced Certificate in Egyptology is designed for advanced, independent education in an effort to produce scholars and academics who want to do Egyptology.
Meredith Conroy (political science), José Muñoz (sociology), Enrique Murillo Jr. (education) and Aleksandra Ksiezak (2022-23 W. Benson Harer Egyptology Scholar in Residence) were mentioned in recent news articles.
Ksiezak is teaching an upper-division history course, “In the Land of Stone and Copper: An Introduction to Ancient Egyptian Technology,” and will give a keynote lecture, “A gateway into the desert: History, exploration, and cyclical rediscovery of Wadi Tumilat,” at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art on Oct. 27.
Brand is the fourth Egyptologist to visit and teach at CSUSB since the start of the visiting scholar program in 2018. In addition to teaching in the departments of history and anthropology, she will present a keynote talk, “Making Millions of Pots: How the Cult in Ancient Egypt Met Its Demand for Pottery,” at RAFFMA on April 5.
Kate Liszka, CSUSB associate professor of history and director of the Wadi el-Hudi Expedition, will present “Operation Amethyst: How Egyptian Kings and Queens got their Bling 4,000 years ago” at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 20 online. It is the first of two talks she will share in the series.
Kate Liszka (history) shared some of the details on the new Certificate in Egyptology program, Diane Vines (nursing) has been invited to present at virtual two conferences, and Anthony Silard (public administration) wrote on “Breaking Addiction to Heal True Connections.”
Students taking courses in Egyptology will not only learn about ancient Egyptian history and culture, they will also learn how to debate, interpret, research and write history from diverse and incomplete sources.
The website detailing the work at the Wadi el-Hudi archaeological project in Egypt can now reach more people than ever – it is now available in English, Spanish and Arabic.
