The Department of Political Science and the

Mean for Egypt and the Middle East?

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011
3:00–4:30 p.m.
William Wehr Physics Bldg., Room 141

Roundtable Participants:

Prof. Barry McCormick, Department of Political Science

Prof. Risa Brooks, Department of Political Science

Prof. Philip Naylor, Department of History
“Egypt’s Upheaval in Historical Context”

Riman Barakat, Department of Political Science
“Youth and Technology in Egypt’s Uprising”

The presenters will make brief presentations, and discussion with the audience will follow. Refreshments will be provided.

The recent (or perhaps “ongoing”) revolution in Egypt is either (most likely) the best thing ever to happen to that very important nation, or (possibly) another disaster of the magnitude that brought the Mullahs to power in Iran.

We’re talking monumentally important stuff here, and we wouldn’t dream of missing this.
