The Egyptology State of the Field is an independent, collaborative, international project staffed by volunteers with educational and professional backgrounds in Egyptology and Egyptology-adjacent fields. A field-wide study of Egyptology and its practitioners with the goal of gathering demographic, educational, and occupational data has never been undertaken in the United States. Individuals who have obtained degrees and/or worked in jobs in Egyptology or Egyptology-adjacent fields in the United States (including those who have left the field) are invited to participate. The project consists of a short, anonymous online survey with the option for an extended interview. Questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey will open in February 2021.
