Revolutionary Processes: An Exploration of Tahrir Square and Beyond

Seminar, 5 ECTS, Department of Political Science, University of Innsbruck (Summer Term 17)

The revolutionary processes in the Middle East have had major impacts on the political landscape of the entire region. In this course, we will focus on Egypt’s Tahrir movement, one of the many centers of these processes, which since 2011 has decentralized and taken many—often creative—forms. By drawing on a pluralistic epistemology of political key concepts such as revolution, conflict and peace, as well as theories of social movement and civil disobedience, particular attention will be given to actors at the margins of the Tahrir movement. These voices are often unheard whilst articulating counter-positions to the political regime. This focus will serve as a starting point to also discuss the larger systemic interrelations with protest movements in other countries. Students will have the possibility to participate in an extra-curricular excursion to Egypt in the framework of this course. This will be an opportunity to further expand upon the contents of this class through meeting with colleagues and activists of the Egyptian revolutionary process.
