In two short years, Egypt has undergone dramatic change, accelerating the disintegration of its social fabric. This seminar, with guest speakers Akram Khater, Abdeslam Maghraoui, and Ellen McLarney, introduces participants to the long history leading up to the Arab Spring which overthrew President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and the challenges the country faces as it attempts to implement a democratic regime. In the panel session, our speakers discuss the present and future of Egypt after the coup of 2013. Anyone interested in contemporary affairs will want to be a part of this Adventures in Ideas seminar.
