About Us
On Saturday 25 June 2022...

The international Sudan Studies Research Conference will be held online and in Germany at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in collaboration with Durham University's DUSESG Founders.

In 2017 the Durham University Sudan & Egyptology Study Group (DUSESG) based in the Archaeology Department held the first DUSESG Conference.

Following the success of that inaugural conference, DUSESG was invited to host their conference in collaboration with the Cambridge University (2018), Oxford University (2019) and in 2020 it was due to be held for the first time internationally in Italy at the University of Naples 'L'Orientale'.

But due to the global COVID-19 pandemic the conference had to be postponed.

However in 2021 we returned bigger and better than ever before with our newly re-named Sudan Studies Research Conference. Held in association with the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw at the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland it was our first international and first hybrid event.

This year we are excited to be able to bring another blended hybrid event - held both online and in Germany at the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich.

Our events continue to be run by academic volunteers (primarily Archaeologists). But we are open to (and encourage) interdisciplinary postgraduate, postdoctoral and other researchers working on subjects with a focus on Sudan (ancient and modern) to submit their work for consideration.
