Graduate students in history and art history will present their Egyptological research. Dr. Suzanne Onstine, assistant professor in the U of M’s Department of History will give the keynote lecture at 2:30 p.m. Her topic will be “Research in the Theban tomb of Panehsy and Tarenu (TT16) Luxor, Egypt.”

The lecture will focus on various aspects of their lives as well as some of the technical challenges of working in a Theban tomb.

Mitchell Hall is located on the west side of the Alumni Mall across from the University Center. Parking is available in the parking garages on Innovation Drive or Zach Curlin Street or in the parking lot adjacent to Southern Avenue parking.
