      Our 39th Annual Symposium

      This winter, The SSEA/SÉÉA will hold our Annual Symposium on the topic of  "Pyramids: The Mountains of Pharaoh".   This year's symposium, held in conjuction with our Annual General Meeting and Scholars' Colloquium has been scheduled for JANUARY 11th, 2014.  More information on speakers, venue and ticketing will be announced later.
       The Symposium coincides with the Annual General Meeting of the SSEA/SÉÉA, and all events will be held on the campus of the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

      The Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities/Société pour l'Étude de l'Égypte Ancienne invites all doctoral level graduate students and senior scholars to submit proposals for papers to be given at this year's Scholars' Colloquium. The FIRST deadline for submission is AUGUST 31st , 2013.  Those who need early acceptance to apply for travel grants are urged to apply before this deadline, and to indicate the reason for needing early notification in their covering email.  Proposals will continue to be accepted after this deadline.
         The Colloquium will be held on January 10th and 12th, 2014 on the campus of the University of Toronto.

      Proposals for Scholars' Colloquium papers will be accepted from graduate students and senior scholars in the fields of Egyptology, Anthropology, Classics, Fine Arts, Archaeology, Nubian Studies and related fields on ANY topic connected with predynastic, pharaonic, Hellenistic, Roman or Coptic Egypt, but must represent an original contribution to the field.  Presentations may be given in either English or French.  Papers may not exceed 20 minutes in length.

      Since a limited number of proposals will be accepted, papers will be vetted by committee. Interested scholars should send a title and brief abstract of their proposed paper to the Scholars' Colloquium Coordinators at scholarscolloquium@... or scholarscoll@.... Please note that only proposals submitted in electronic format [i.e. via email] will be considered.  Abstracts must not exceed 350 words in length.  Acceptances of papers will be issued beginning in September.

         As noted elsewhere in this notice, the SSEA/SÉÉA is also holding its 39th Annual Symposium on the same weekend.  Papers accepted for the Scholars' Colloquium are not limited to the topic of the symposium, and no preference will be given to proposals based on topic.  Please also note that the SSEA is soliciting proposals for the Scholars' Colloquium only.

      NEW THIS YEAR:  We will be having a POSTER SESSION as well.  The Call for Posters will be circulated next month.

      Once again this year a special travel award has been set up in memory of Steven J. Larkman, former President of Calgary Chapter, by his friends and colleagues.  This award will be available to aid scholars wishing to travel to Toronto to present at the 2013 SSEA Scholars' Colloquium.  This award will be given to aid scholars who would not otherwise have funding to travel to the event, and will be given as partial reimbursement of travel costs upon presentation of original receipts.  Scholars wishing to apply for this award must be members of the SSEA and must have submitted an extended abstract of their presentations for consideration in advance of the date of the
      Colloquium.   If you would like more information about this award, or if you would like to make a donation, please email info@...
