Demon Things Conference:
Ancient Egyptian Manifestations of Liminal Entities
When: March 21-24, 2016
Where: Swansea University and The Egypt Centre, Wales, UK
From the organizers:
This international conference explores the range and variation of liminal entities the Ancient Egyptians believed capable of harm and help from the Predynastic through the Coptic periods. While previous demonological conferences focussed on issues related to definitions, we invite scholars to discuss the manifestations of demons through iconography, objects, or textual descriptions. Scholars are encouraged to present their findings in the hopes that the conference will provide a creative venue for spotting links and patterns. By converging different areas of research a fuller picture of these multi-faceted entities may emerge.
In addition to the conference, a number of related activities are being arranged for conference attendees. Participation is open to all.
