About the talk:
Zaynab El Bernoussi’s research about demands of dignity in the Arab region was triggered in the US, in spaces of Arab communion. Dignity has been a recurrent demand of protest movements around the world and across time, but in 2011, with the ‘Arab Spring,’ the connection between dignity demands and Arab identity became more pronounced. El Bernoussi’s research was prompted by this challenge at a time when the region of North Africa and the Middle East was drifting in the socio-political uprisings of 2011. The main motivation in the research was to investigate understandings of dignity by protesters in 2011 in Egypt. El Bernoussi will show that dignity is more than a nebulous concept, it is a powerful political tool of solidarity that needs attention.
