Join this intriguing book talk with author Hania Sobhy, Research Fellow at Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, as she discusses her book, Schooling the Nation:

By approaching schools as key disciplinary and nation-building institutions, Schooling the Nation addresses the ways in which citizenship was produced, lived, and imagined in the critical years before and after the Egyptian uprising of 2011. Based on rare access to Egyptian secondary schools from 2008 to 2018, it dissects the constellations of marketization, noncompliance and violence that define Egypt's 'permissive-repressive neoliberalism' and shows how young women and men construct the state and negotiate national belonging.
