I have been attached to ARCE since it welcomed me in 1985 when I was a student in Egypt studying Egyptology at the American University in Cairo. From that time on, Madam Amira, the directors, and the staff were welcoming and approachable. The library was a safe haven, and the lecture series provided intellectual stimulus as well as an opportunity to meet scholars of renown. Subsequently I have been a Fellow, a Board Member, and served on several committees of ARCE. It is an institution that fosters intellectual growth and serves as a forum for Egyptian scholars and students to meet their counterparts from the US and elsewhere. ARCE has served as a meeting point and a place of intellectual stimulus for several generations of scholars and should be recognised for its service to Egyptology (as well as Coptology, Islamic art, architecture, and history, the history of Egypt, as well as topics pertaining to the sociology, anthropology, and politics of Egypt.
