Arabic Language and Cultures | Visiting Professor Nicola Pratt: Politics, Popular Culture and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution

Department of Arabic Language and Cultures

Politics, Popular Culture and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution

What is the relationship between politics and popular culture? How is popular culture a prism through which to understand the political dynamics of the 2011 Egyptian revolution? What does popular culture reveal about political dynamics that may otherwise be hidden from view?

This seminar seeks to explore dimensions of the 2011 Egyptian revolution through an examination of popular cultural texts – including songs, graffiti, cartoons and films – curated in an on-line digital archive: egyptrevolution2011.ac.uk. This archive seeks to create a greater understanding of the significance of the 2011 uprising and its aftermath for everyday Egyptians as well as the relationship between politics and popular culture in a revolutionary context.

Speakers
  • Introduction: Lucia Sorbera (The University of Sydney)
  • Nicola Pratt, Visiting Professor (Warwick University)
