Event description

Description

Please join us for the Fifth Annual Birmingham Egyptology Symposium, 'Conflict in Ancient Culture' which will be held in the Arts Building (Lecture Theatre 3, Room 127) at the University of Birmingham.

Our free event features a range of presentations from postgraduate students and academics on ancient Egyptian conflict relating to language, art, ancient perspectives of Egypt and physical evidence of warfare. We are lucky to also have a wide range of speakers from the UK and Europe joining us for this symposium!

Refreshments, lunch and a wine reception will also be provided.

As part of our event, we would like to offer delegates the opportunity to join us for an optional tour of the Eton Myers collection, on loan from Eton College and currently held within the University of Birmingham. This tour of the 2016-2017 Objects Coming to Life exhibition, hosted by the former curator of the exhibition Stephanie Boonstra, will take place on the evening of Thursday 10th May (6pm-7pm), and will be followed by an informal dinner at a local restaurant within Selly Oak, Birmingham. If you would like to attend this in addition to the Symposium, please select the 'BE Symposium Delegate PLUS Eton Myers tour' ticket from the options below. We will email you with further details of this tour and dinner plans in due course. Please note that while the tour is free, the dinner is unfortunately not!

Our event will be promoted through our website, Facebook and Twitter, but we would be grateful if delegates could share this event with anyone whom you think might be interested in attending. We very much look forward to meeting you at our Symposium!



FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

TRAINS: The campus has its own train station, ‘University’, with trains going to and from Birmingham New St in the city centre around every 10 minutes. Going from the city, take a train towards Longbridge or Redditch. University is two stops, approximately an 8-minutes journey, and should cost no more than £2.90 for a return ticket (no more than £2.30 with a railcard).

BUSES: The nearest bus stop to the campus which serves buses to and from the city centre to the University Campus is that at the junction of Bristol Road and Edgbaston Park Road (the South Gate of the University)
– near the Orange Zone on the campus map. Take the no. 61 or 63 from stop NS3 (on St. Martins Queensway, near New Street station and the Bullring shopping centre). Services 98 or X64 will also take you to the North Gate of the University, which is a short 5 minute walk to the Arts Building.

PARKING: We regret that due to major work taking place on campus at the moment, there is very limited parking nearby the University. For the latest up to date information, please visit: https://intranet.birmingham.ac.uk/has/sustainable-travel/car-parking.aspx

Disabled spaces are available next to the ERI Building on Pritchatts Road. Please contact carparking@bham.ac.uk to confirm with the University team if you will need one of these spaces.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you need to contact us, please don't hesitate to email us at: symposium@birminghamegyptology.co.uk

Or feel free to send a direct message through Facebook/Twitter/our Birmingham Egyptology website! We are happy to help.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You don't need to print off your ticket; we will have your name and University affiliation (if you have one) and confirm this with you when you register on the day of the event. Every delegate will receive a name badge and welcome pack!

If you are unable to attend the event nearer the time, we would be grateful if you could let us know via email (symposium@birminghamegyptology.co.uk) so that your place can be given to another delegate.
