The Long 1890s in Egypt

Colonial Quiescence, Subterranean Resistance

First Edition

Edited by Marilyn Booth and Gorman Anthony

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Revises the prevailing view that the 1890s in Egypt was a time of withdrawal and quiescence
  • Engages with questions of political engagement, shifting gender roles, geographical ambiguities, the emergence of new media, community identity formation and changing artistic formations
  • Considers the parallels between that turn-of-the-century and the more recent one, with its equally 'quiet' ferment preceding the Egyptian popular uprising of 2011
