Description: The January revolution in Egypt was a time of extraordinary uncertainty and transformation. On the one hand, there was excitement and the sense of something new and wonderful transpiring. On the other, there was an ominous sense that no one could know where things would lead. In a matter of weeks a political entity that had maintained total control over Egypt for some thirty years dissolved in the face of popular unrest in Cairo, Alexandria, and many of Egypt’s other major cities. While civil order has been restored under martial law, and the Egyptian military has empowered a temporary, transitional civil government, the political and economic future of Egypt remains uncertain. Because Egypt’s incomparable antiquities – a prime focus of ARCE’s scholarly and research interests – are under the aegis of the Egyptian government, what will these changes mean for future research and study?

Dr. Gerry Scott. ARCE’s Director, will speak to ARCE’s Dallas Chapter on Saturday, August 13th about what it was like to be in Egypt during the revolution, the changes that have transpired thus far, and likely possibilities for the future. In addition, he will address what impact the events surrounding the revolution had – and will likely have – on ARCE, and what changes the Research Center – and Egyptian antiquities research – may face as a result.
