Atef Said presents “Spatio-Temporality or Spatio-Temporalities of Revolution?”

This talk will take place on Wednesday, October 24th in the Institute for the Humanities in the lower level of Stevenson Hall at 701 S. Morgan Street. In the lecture, Said presents key theoretical threads in his book-in progress “Tahrir: Revolution Squared.” He discusses how different bodies of literature dealt with the question of spatialities and temporalities of revolutions and presents his concept of “revolutionary boundary,” applied to the case of the Egyptian Revolution and the centrality of Tahrir Square in this revolution, as well as the implication of this centrality on the trajectory of the uprising.
