The Death Penalty in Contemporary Egypt: States, Murderers, and State Murderers by Amira Mahmoud Othman( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This thesis is an ethnography of the encounters between figures of the state and some death row detainees and their family members. The project explores what it means to be sentenced to death and executed in contemporary death row cases, what fantasies encounters with the 'state' imply or satisfy, and how time unfolds throughout the murder. As such, in exploring the genealogy and bureaucratization of murder, this ethnography problematizes the official discourses of abstraction, efficacy, and sanitization around the penalty. Instead, it focuses on the everydayness of the penalty within the legal and penal systems, and draws heavily on the details and nuances of encounters with state personnel in courtrooms, prisons, and morgues. In doing so, I ask who kills the bodies? How do they become killable? When do they (not) die? Whose are they? Where do they go? Starting with the body, and the networks in and through which the body moves, the project nevertheless expands on possibilities of presence despite the absence of the physical body, thereby pointing to the intricacies of and between life/death, human/nonhuman, and memory/future

Egyptian workers in Paris : economic migration and the male burden under transnationalism by Reem Saad( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article looks at the living and working conditions of a group of Egyptian workers in the Paris region. The article argues that the experience of this group is dictated by a transnational framework that is particularly evident in the meanings of ‘community' and of ‘home', and by the gender assigned roles in rural Egypt where the man is to shoulder the burden of providing for the family

Theatre, performance and affect through revolutionary times in Egypt by Noha Khattab( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Interactive street theatre is this significant genre of theatre that takes the stage to the audience. It is a genre that stages its performances beyond the walls of theatre houses, and finds its space within the everyday. This thesis is an ethnographic study about interactive street theatre in Egypt post 2011. It explores how street theatre creates alternative spatiality and temporality that triggers possibilities of change through imagination. In this thesis I am focusing my analysis of two street theatre troupes who are particularly concerned with taking the stage to 'marginalized' audience, and by this act they tend to create spaces for expression and imagination
“There Is Zero Regulation on the Selling of Alcohol”: The Voice of the Youth on the Context and Determinants of Alcohol Drinking in Lebanon( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Alcohol-related research from the Arab world has rarely touched on the experiences or views of Arab adolescents. In this article, we present an in-depth analysis of youth alcohol drinking patterns and determinants derived from focus group discussions completed with more than 100 Lebanese high school/vocational students (15–19 years). The social ecology of alcohol use framework guided our research and analysis. Findings reveal that alcohol drinking is perceived as a pervasive and serious public health problem, triggered by a complex web of social relations, and facilitated by lax policies. Recommendations to curb heavy/harmful alcohol drinking among adolescents include regulating the role of alcohol industry, providing alternative recreational spaces/pass-times, educating about alcohol-related harms, and promoting more research on alcohol and its harms. Findings confirm the social ecology of alcohol use framework, and suggest the addition of the macro level of influence to this model, namely, a comprehensive alcohol harm reduction policy

Nubians and development : 1960-2014 by Samantha Allen( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: From the Aswan dams of the early twentieth century to the ambitious "Toshka" project of today, Egyptian Nubians have watched their former land transform under the rubrics of progress, modernization, and development for over one hundred years. While these mega-projects position themselves as necessary for the greater Egyptian good, their tangible effect on the ground is less clear. For Nubians who lost their homes, lands, and traditional livelihood due to resettlement, the price of development is even higher, posing important questions about the real value of these schemes. This thesis project offers a critical look at the concept of development, using the example of Egypt's Nubians to understand how this discourse is written, narrated, and practiced on the ground. By framing development as a discourse - that is, an "interwoven set of languages and practices"--This research engages with scholarship that sees development as "a modernist regime of knowledge and disciplinary power" (Crush, 1991). The discourse of development is a distinctly modern product, embedded in a web of related concepts including poverty, production, the notion of the state, and equality (Sachs, 1992). As the critical literature on development shows, this discourse has a historical context, rooted in twentieth-century interactions between western colonizers and their colonies (Esteva, 1992). Development, as a means to increase productivity while also civilizing colonies, allowed colonizers to contain social and political challenges in the waning years of rule. Beginning in the Nasser period in Egypt, my project demonstrates how post-colonial regimes appropriate the discourse of development for similar aims. As Toby Jones shows in his study of Saudi Arabia, state power over land and resources, and the ability to manipulate those resources at will, goes "hand in hand with the power to determine, govern, and police the territoriality of the nation-state, and thus the sovereignty of the state itself" (Jones, 2010). For Egyptian president Gamal Abdel-Nasser, constructing the Aswan High Dam allowed not only for the control of water and electricity, but also for a bold display of sovereignty in the wake of ongoing British intervention. Building on Michel Foucault's concept of "governmentality," my project shows how increasing state control of land and resources also translated into increased control of populations and people. Drawing from the archives of the 1961-1963 SRC "Nubian Ethnological Survey," this research shows how Egyptian state forces brought Nubians increasingly under the administrative fold of the state, using the language of development and increased state services to obscure the political and social risk of mass displacement. In addition to state-produced development discourses regarding Egypt's Nubians, this project looks at the role of international development organizations in consolidating state authority under the auspices of development. From the Nasser period until today, international development organizations have played an enormous role in dictating the terms of Nubians' relations to the state. Operating under the pretense of rational and unbiased expertise, organizations such as the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the World Food Program (WFP), the World Bank, and many others have been able to maintain powerful economic and political stakes in Egypt (Mitchell, 1995). As my research shows, this power often comes at the expense of the "objects" of development, such as Egypt's Nubians. Using the example of several recent development schemes - spearheaded by international organizations - aiming to resettle "Old Nubia" (what is now Lake Nasser and its surrounding environs), this analysis demonstrates how the language of equality and development continues to side-step Nubian demands to return to their former home. This research complicates notions of development, emphasizing the over-arching political and economic considerations that dictate its terms. It also presents a picture of how the "objects" of development experience this complex web of languages and practices on the ground, challenging development's inherent claims to progress and improvement. At the same time, this project highlights how Nubians themselves use development discourse as a strategy for making claims to the state. If, as development literature suggests, states use the ostensibly neutral language of development to obscure fundamental social and political issues, is it possible to argue the same for Nubians? Given the deeply politicized nature of the "Nubian issue" in Egyptian society today, this research suggests that Nubians use the language of development as one of many tactics to articulate demands to the state. My project proposes that by co-opting the international language of development, Nubians can advocate their claims using frameworks that avoid modern state insecurities towards minorities and indigenous inhabitants
