Welcome to H-Egypt

H-Egypt is a digital space and resource that is dedicated to the study of Egypt from the early Islamic period to the present. H-Egypt is governed by and designed for scholars of Egypt who are affiliated with universities and research institutes around the globe, including in Egypt itself. It will serve as the locus of an academic community without a home, and provide scholars of Egypt with a natural home on H-Net. It also aims to bridge a gap between scholars in Egypt, mainly writing in Arabic, and those abroad. In addition to publishing the latest news and information in the field, the H-Egypt team manage, compile, and regularly post lists of available research and teaching resources; monitor leading academic journals and publishing houses for recent articles and books on Egypt; keep our subscribers up to date with ongoing and upcoming scholarly events such as conferences, book talks, workshops, call for papers, roundtables, lectures, etc.; and share any postings on H-Job that may be relevant to our subscribers.
