In the two years since the ouster of 30-year autocrat Hosni Mubarak, Egypt has gone through two referenda and three elections. The transition period is officially over, but protests rage in the streets, strikes grip factories, and dissent has become a way of life. From 18 heady days in Tahrir Square to a more protracted struggle—what is the course of Egypt’s revolution?

The McGill International Studies Fund was established in 1996 with a gift from Patricia C. and Charles H. McGill ’63. The gift helped secure a matching grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The income from the fund is to be used to support the appointment of visiting humanities scholars, primarily international scholars, in the academic areas of international studies that include African studies, Asian studies, Latin American studies, Middle Eastern studies, post-colonial studies, and Russian and Eurasian studies.
