Based in Boston, ARCE-NE is a regional chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt.


The New England Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt exists to inform and educate chapter members and the general public about the culture and history of Egypt from ancient through modern times.  Our primary activities are lectures that bring leading scholars and specialists in Egyptology and Coptic and Islamic studies to Boston and the surrounding New England region to present their work in an accessible forum, to share their experiences, and to interact with the interested public.  When possible, other chapter activities can include larger thematic workshops, tours and organized exhibition viewings, and social events.  As a local organization, ARCE-New England aims to be responsive to its home region.  It seeks out speakers and topics that are interesting and fun for all audiences but which serve the particular interests and needs of its membership.  Above all, we hope to create an active, diverse community in which professionals and non-professionals alike, people of any age and experience can meet regularly to learn, exchange knowledge, and foster a mutual love of Egypt.
