Laughter in The Dark: Egypt after Revolution
SNF RDV
Reid Hall | 4, rue de Chevreuse, 75006 Paris
Free and open to the public

Taking cyclical histories as its narrative interest and organizing form, this lecture weaves personal experience, reportage, archival research, and oral history to tell a partial story of Egypt across several generations and decades.

From Egypt’s defeat in the war of 1967, to a father’s disappearance, the death of a president, censored narratives, the sale of a beloved family home, and the disappointments of revolution, Yasmine El Rashidi weaves disparate threads of her work together to give an alternate political and cultural reading of Egypt.
