Mina's Banner: Edward Said
and the Egyptian revolution
Edward W. Said London lecture
Ahdaf Soueif provides notes from the Egyptian revolution with special reference to Edward W Said.
‘Everything is fragmented and fluid and unstable and hopeful and dangerous. We have insights and connections and blank spaces and questions. “Mina’s Banner” is the phrase I need to use now – but what will it mean by the time we reach May?’ Ahdaf Soueif, Cairo, 5 February 2012
Opening remarks by Omar Al-Qattan, introduction by Jacqueline Rose.
This event took place on 24 May 2012.
