International Summer School “Ancient Egyptian Art”

The Institute for Egyptology and Coptology at LMU Munich and the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museums in Mannheim cordially invite you to participate in an international summer school on the subject of "Ancient Egyptian Art" .

The main goal of the summer school (languages: German and English) is to offer special training to study ancient Egyptian art and to enable an in-depth discussion. The school brings together young international researchers and established experts and focuses on a theoretically sound art-historical approach to Egyptian art forms and their surroundings from the time span of all ancient Egyptian civilizations. The summer school examines the form, material and context of three- and two-dimensional works of art, discusses the analysis of different genres and offers practical approaches to topics such as dating criteria and the meaning of a number of types.

Applications are particularly welcome from MA students, doctoral students and younger postdocs in Egyptology who are very interested in the history of Egyptian art. Basic knowledge of ancient Egyptian art is expected.

The summer school will offer a unique opportunity for sharing expertise and offering all participants high-profile discussions on practical and theoretical perspectives on art-historical research, based on lectures, presentations, and group discussions. Members of the school are expected to make a presentation on an art-historical topic from a relevant period or periods, or one that is related to object(s) exhibited in Munich. 

The summer school invites applications particularly from MA students, PhD students, and earlycareer postdocs in Egyptology who have a special interest in Egyptian art history. It is open to EU and non-EU applicants. Participants are expected to have at least a basic knowledge of ancient Egyptian art.
