Schedule of talks
In 2017 the Durham University Sudan & Egyptology Study Group (DUSESG) based in the Archaeology Department held the first DUSESG Conference. Following the success of that inaugural conference, DUSESG was invited to host their conference in collaboration with the Cambridge University (2018), Oxford University (2019) and in 2020 it was due to be held for the first time internationally in Italy at the University of Naples 'L'Orientale'. However, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic the conference had to be postponed.
In 2021, our fifth event is the re-named Sudan Studies Research Conference. It will be held in association with the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw at the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland. This is a significant milestone event for us. We look forward to welcoming you to this our first international and first hybrid event, held both in Warsaw and online simultaneously on Saturday 04 September and Sunday 05 September 2021.
