Alexandra's Conference Fund

Don protégé

My name is Alexandra Morris. Since I was a little girl I've been fascinated by archaeology. I've pursued my dreams through an undergraduate degree in archaeology, art history, and anthropology at SUNY Potsdam and an MA in Egyptology at the University of Pennsylvania. I love to look at artifacts and the historical record and find surprising truths that were hidden in plain sight. I've written a groundbreaking thesis on King Tut's physical disabilities and most recently, a paper on Alexander the Great and traumatic brain injuries.

 

I recently found out that I have a wonderful opportunity that could be a turning point in my life: I was accepted to  to present my paper on Alexander the Great and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy at an international history and archaeology conference in Athens, Greece this coming June (2016, 14th Annual International Conference On History & Archaeology: Ancient to Modern). In order to attend, however, I will need to come up with air fare, conference registration fees, and hotel expenses that are greater than I anticipated, that are also made more difficult as I am paying off student loans. 

 

This conference will serve as a launching point for my intended career path of disability archaeology, and put me in an international spotlight for the first time, meaning that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that can literally change the course of my professional life. I am currently back living with my parents, who are not wealthy, and working as an intern at the Bedford Historical Society.

 

Ideally, I would need funding by June 1. Any contributions are greatly appreciated, and anyone who contributes will receive a personalized, heartfelt, thank you from me in addition to a copy of the paper once it's been through the peer-review process if they so wish!
