"'We are very excited about this new collaborative exchange agreement between Harvard and AUC, and look forward to increased 'traffic' on this two-way street between Cairo and Cambridge,'" said Manuelian. "'Where else to gain additional experience in Egyptology but in Egypt itself?'"

Harvard University signed an agreement with the American University in Cairo (AUC) to establish long-term relations and increased cooperation, especially between Harvard and AUC's Department of Egyptology. As part of this new partnership, AUC will be hosting a Harvard PhD student in Spring 2019. Professor Peter Der Manuelian "believes the new agreement will enhance Harvard's Egyptology studies and will be an opportunity for Harvard students to study with AUC's distinguished Egyptology Department and gain field experience".
