Museum Matters 2022: Egyptian and Sudanese Collections in Latin America and the Caribbean (23 April 2022)

7 April 2022

Museum Matters is a panel discussion series powered by the ICOM International Committee for Egyptology (CIPEG). The series is meant to get aspiring and experienced museum professionals in touch about important museum matters. Discussions will centre on themes relevant to the museum community today and address issues specific to Egyptology and Nubiology and associated collectionsworldwide.

The inaugural panel discussion of the Museum Matters series takes place on Saturday 23 April from 4pm till 5:30pm and focuses on the formation of Egyptian and Sudanese collections in Latin American and Caribbean countries. What was the impetus for the creation of the collections in Mexico City, Havana, La Plata, and Rio de Janeiro? How do these collections fit within European colonialism, the ‘Age of Enlightenment’ and the building of national identity? All presentations will be online and in English. Registration is required (300 participants max): please do so via contacting Lara Weiss: L.Weiss@rmo.nl
