ARCE posterArt History Student Wins National Award!

Jessica Johnson, M.A. student in Art History, received the award for the Best Graduate Student Poster at the annual conference of the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) held in Atlanta, GA in April. Jessica competed against masters and doctoral students from Egyptology programs across the United States. Her poster topic, which is also the subject of her M.A. thesis, focused on the relationship between minor demons in the Book of the Dead known as gate guardians and Ammit (the part crocodile, lion, hippopotamus demon named "The Devourer") in the "Weighing of the Heart" scene. Congratulations, Jess!

They were awarded first place in the Fine and Liberal Arts division.

ARCE and the University of Memphis Research Forum accept poster proposals every year, so we hope to make the successes of our students and the department a tradition!
