Amy Austin-Holmes, assistant professor at the American University in Cairo and witness to the uprising that ousted the Mubarak regime in Egypt, will speak at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, in UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center room 417. This event is free and open to the public.
Austin-Holmes was in Cairo throughout the entire uprising and witnessed many of the key events. Her research lies in the intersection of both democratization processes and social movements in countries where the United States has a strong security commitment. This presentation, which will include photographs and video, will explore the internal and external dynamics that led to the collapse of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, as well as the current period characterized by military rule.
