Islamists and the Egyptian Revolution

Dear colleagues,
We would be most grateful if you could circulate an upcoming event of the Woolf Institute:
Open Lecture
‘Islamists and the Egyptian Revolution’

Dr. Ewan Stein (Edinburgh University)
Wednesday, 9 November 2011, 17.00
Dining Hall, Wesley House, Jesus Lane

The talk will focus on the revival of Islamist political action in Egypt following the January 25 Revolution. It compares the fortunes of the main Islamist trends prior to, and following, January 25, 2011 and highlights the significance of renewed Islamist activity for Egypt's political development as a whole.
Dr Ewan Stein is lecturer at the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh.
His research interests include political Islam, the role of ideas in foreign policy and international relations, state-society relations and the links between social and normative change in Middle Eastern regional politics.  He is particularly interested in these questions as they relate to the modern history, sociology and foreign policy of Egypt, including Egypt's shifting role in the broader Arab-Israeli conflict.


Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
Tina Steiner
