Egypt: Unfinished Revolution?

SPEAKER(S): Jack Shenker, journalist, author; Khaled Fahmy, Shawwaf Visiting Professor in Modern Middle East History, Center for Middle Eastern Studies; Professor of History, American University in Cairo
Six years on from Egypt’s January 25 revolution, the Arab World's most populous nation remains in a state of volatility, marked by an ailing economy, a security crisis, and unprecedented levels of repression. In this talk, Jack Shenker will join Khaled Fahmy to discuss Shenker's recent book "The Egyptians: A Radical History of Egypt's Unfinished Revolution", which argues that conventional accounts of Egypt's turmoil must be rethought, and connecting unrest in the country with a far wider breakdown of the global political order.
