IHS Panel: “The Politics of Protest in North Africa: From the Fall of Algiers to the Arab Spring”

Mon, November 19, 2018 | GAR 4.100

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

This panel joins the perspectives of history and political science to examine North Africa’s political culture and practices in the modern era.  From decolonization to political Islam and the Arab Spring, North Africans have often been on the avant-garde of modern politics.  This panel will look at the ways North Africans have mobilized politically, examining cases from the early colonial era to recent postcolonial movements.  Two of our panelists live and work in the region, giving them a unique on-the-ground perspective.
