Conference: Demon Things – Ancient Egyptian Manifestations of Liminal Entities, 14-17 Mar 2016

Demon Things – Ancient Egyptian Manifestations of Liminal Entities

Location: Egypt Centre, University of Swansea
Date(s): 14-17 Mar 2016

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 focused 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 multifaceted entities may emerge.
