Events in May

Last time I wrote in the blog, I referred to the participation of Cornelia Kleinitz in the SARS annual colloquium in London next week. Those who will have the chance to be there on the 9th of May will attend a rich day with the following program:

SARS 2016

On the 10th of May another venue is organized in London by SARS, namely a seminar on Nubian Living Heritage with topics related more with social aspects of engaging with the Nubian past, present and future.

Similar overtones should be expected on the 21st of May when SOAS will host a presentation of the Nubian Languages and Culture Project.

But things are not only taking place in London.

  • On the 4th of May opens in Budapest the next venue of Enikö Nagy’s superb exhibition on Sudan “Sand in my Eyes“. On the 5th of May, she will be giving a talk, details about which you can see HERE.
  • On the 6th and 7th of May there takes place in Paris, the third colloquium of young researchers on the Archaeology of Sudan with the title “Ritual Practices in Ancient Sudan”. You can find details HERE.

Now, if you’d rather have things planned in advance, then why not considering proposing a contribution for next May’s Nilo-Saharan linguistic colloquium that will take place in Addis Ababa? A special panel on “Issues in Nubian Phonology and Tonology” is accepting proposals for papers until the end of this month.

As for myself, although I will not participate to these events, I will be contributing to a different venue, the Annual meeting of the Nordic Coptic network. Looking forward to introducing Nubian Studies to such an interesting panel!
