Conference “After the Spring: Which Way Forward for the Middle East?”
Omar Sirri, Amir Sadafi, Ellen Berry and Carolyn Barnett, all of them students of MSc in Middle East Politics in SOAS, organized a 1-day conference that gathered a variety of academics, journalists and activists last Saturday 25th February 2012 in Khalili Lecture Theatre. From 9.30 to 7 p.m., hundreds of students, professors, journalists and activists, among others, actively participated in a very interesting discussion on the so-called “Arab Spring”.
This is a video of one of the panelists, Professor Nadje Al-Ali (SOAS), during the panel “Gender and Sexuality in Revolutionary Politics”. I would call it, “Why does theory matter?”, associating it with What’s left of theory (Butler et al. 2000).
Congratulations on the whole Organising Committee.
