CONNECTIONS: Communication in Ancient Egypt

Graves, Carl (2013) CONNECTIONS: Communication in Ancient Egypt. In: University of Birmingham Graduate School Research Poster Conference 2013 , 12th June 2013, University of Birmingham. (Unpublished)



This poster displays the results of the 'CONNECTIONS:Communication in Ancient Egypt' exhibition organised from January to June 2012. The project involved 12 students, staff members and alumni from Egyptology at the University of Birmingham coming together to create a ground breaking exhibition about a topic rarely approached within the discipline. All 12 contributors used objects from the Eton College Joseph William Myers Collection of Egyptian Antiquities on loan to the university to create a small display about a specific sub-topic within the main theme of communication. This research was further exemplified by an online exhibition catalogue of essays available at www.birmingham.ac.uk/connections. The project also involved exhibition creation and management workshops at The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum Coventry, and photogrammetry workshops by the College of Arts and Law. Contributors gained skills in these career specific subjects, as well as experience in editing work and submitting papers for publication - alongside the challenge of thinking outside the box to display objects to a chosen audience. The project was kindly funded by the University of Birmingham College of Arts and Law Postgraduate Research Development Fund.
