Over the past decade, Egyptians of varied ideological viewpoints have offered differing approaches to the role of religion in state and society alike. In his talk, Professor Rock-Singer will explore this conflict over the role of Islam in contemporary Egypt, beginning under British colonial rule in the early 20th century before moving onto the mid-century rise of the post-colonial Egyptian state and its battles with Islamic movements. By telling this history, he will cast light not only on crucial dynamics of 20th century Egypt but also on the fault lines that continue to structure the conflict between President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi and the Muslim Brotherhood.
