We are very pleased to add Amanda Davis to our proud list of PhD recipients. Amanda successfully defended her thesis, "Egyptian and Minoan Relations during the Eighteenth Dynasty/Late Bronze Age", on August 3. She recently took an intensive course in teaching English as a second language and really enjoyed the program, as a result of which she is planning to enter a one-year program at Lesley University in Boston to get a Massachusetts teaching license to teach elementary school English as a second language.
The department is very pleased to announce that PhD candidate Julia Troche for her outstanding presentation at ARCE last week, where she received Third Place of all the papers presented for her work, "On the Origins of Apotheosis in Ancient Egypt." Congratulations, Julia! Additionally, former under graduateJulia Troche Katherine Davis '10, now at Johns Hopkins for her PhD, was also recognized for her exceptional work. Wonderful for the recipients and for the whole department.
