The University of Exeter has announced the schedule for the second part of its series of 'Medieval Archaeology in the Horn of Africa' seminars. These seminars aim to bring recent research on the medieval archaeology of the Horn of Africa to a wide audience and the series starts with one lecture this month.
And another two other Ethiopia related online events have been advertised for January 2022.

Wednesday 19 January, 01:00-2:00 GMT - CRITICAL CONTENT: Jessica Beshir in Conversation with John Ridley
A conversation between Faya Dayi director, Jessica Beshir and John Ridley.
A sublime work of trance-state cinema, the debut feature by the Mexican Ethiopian filmmaker Jessica Beshir is a hypnotic immersion in the world of rural Ethiopia, a place where one commodity—khat, a euphoria-inducing plant once prized for its supposedly mystical properties—holds sway over the rituals and rhythms of everyday life.
(This is the time of the first broadcast - the interview will be available to watch online at any time afterwards)

Wednesday 19 January, 16:00-17:00 GMT - Fatimid Caliphate & early Zagwe Ethiopia: 'Greek tragedy' told in Monuments by CfIA - IAIS - University of Exeter
Mikael Muehlbauer, Research fellow at the American Council of Learned Societies, gives the first in the new series of 'Medieval Archaeology in the Horn of Africa' seminars.

Wednesday 26 January, 18:30-19:30 GMT - An Online Pilgrimage through Ethiopia with Revd Dr John Binns by Southwark Cathedral - £1
Join Southwark Cathedral and Revd Dr John Binns for this rescheduled online journey through the Christian sites of Ethiopia.
The talk was originally scheduled to be given in October 2021 but John's internet connection failed mid talk. If you booked for the October talk then there is no need to purchase another ticket as they will be sending you the link to Zoom prior to this talk.
