Written by Amelia Kedge, Assistant, International Training Programme

We are delighted to announce that an ITP Conference Grant 2024 has been awarded to Nagwa Bakr (Egypt, ITP 2019).

Nagwa, who is currently Training Department Director at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Egypt, will be using her grant to attend the Current Research in Egyptology (CRE) 2024 Conference, Liverpool, 2-6 September 2024.

The CRE is an annual conference which aims to facilitate research and promote bonds between British and international universities worldwide who are conducting research in Egyptology, Egyptian Archaeology, or any other related field of study, giving early career researchers a platform to present their completed and/or ongoing research.

Attending the conference will be an opportunity for Nagwa to hear from other professionals in the field of Egyptology, and establish connections for future collaborations. As well as this, Nagwa has been invited to speak at the conference, and will be presenting her research poster titled, “Women’s Programs in Egyptian Museums”.

Nagwa says, ‘I’m delighted to have received the ITP Grant for the Current Research in Egyptology conference at the University of Liverpool. Presenting my research poster “Women’s Programs in Egyptian Museums” at this prestigious event, which gathers early career Egyptologists worldwide. Hosted by the University of Liverpool, in collaboration with other esteemed institutions.’

Since 2019 Nawa has remained an active member of the ITP global network. In November 2022 Nagwa participated in an ITP legacy project based on the Museums Association Conference held in Edinburgh. As part of this week, with fellows from Armenia, Guatemala, India, Philippines, Romania, Rwanda and Uzbekistan, Nagwa attended a programme structured around the 3-day conference exploring how museums can create better places to live and work.

We are delighted to be able to support Nagwa to attend the conference in Liverpool and look forward to her sharing her experience with the wider ITP network.
