On this website, we have gathered some useful information for current and future American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) members and friends. We have upcoming events, especially lectures, listed on the Events page, and you can access recent copies of our Newsletters here. Our Membership page has more information on ARCE and our local chapter and PAPYRUS Club, plus a Membership Application form. On our Websites page, we list other ARCE chapters in the U.S. and some links to other interesting Egypt-related websites. Our What’s new page gives information about out-of-the-ordinary Chapter events and changes/additions to this website.
The ARCE Chapter in Washington, DC (ARCE-DC) sponsors, on average, ten free lectures and one seminar a year, plus occasional social events. We sponsor tours to Egypt and organize occasional bus trips to museums that are featuring exhibitions on Egypt. We maintain close contact with the Embassy of Egypt, which frequently provides a speaking venue for our lecturers. Our lectures are otherwise coordinated with and held at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.
