Join us for our 2-day online conference, Tuesday August 15, 2023 and Wednesday August 16, 2023.

In the decade since the violent dispersal in Cairo on August 14, 2013 of two sit-ins protesting the ouster of Egyptian and MB-affiliated President Muhammad Morsi, Muslim and Islamist discourse has gone through multifaceted transformations. This workshop brings together academics to investigate the Raba’a massacre as a site from which to make sense of these transformations and how they bear on prospects for democracy.

Our conference convenors are Dr Usaama al-Azami (University of Oxford) and Gehad Hasanin (University of Oxford).
