After the Revolution: Islam in Post-2011 Egypt

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST (GMT -05:00)
Dr. Amira Mittermaier

Join the Department of Anthropology, alumni, and friends for the 2023 Sally Weaver Award Guest Lecture "After the Revolution: Islam in Post-2011 Egypt," presented by Amira Mittermaier, Professor of Religion and Anthropology from the University of Toronto.

In the wake of the 2011 uprising, Egypt is both tragically the same and radically transformed. Many former revolutionaries concede that the "revolution has failed." At the same time, they describe having been profoundly impacted by the experience of the revolution. This talk examines how middle-class, cosmopolitan, urban millennials in Egypt are remaking Islam—and reclaiming God—in a troubled post-revolutionary present.

Reception to follow.
