Autumn Quail: January 27, 2014

January 27, 2014

Join the Center for Middle Eastern Studies for a discussion of Autumn Quail by Naguib Mahfouz with CMES Arabic Preceptor and scholar Sami Alkyam.

Legendary Egyptian writer and winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, Naguib Mahfouz writes about shifting experiences of authority and identity following the Egyptian revolution of 1952. Part of a three-part novella cycle exploring the historic military coup that resulted in the overthrow of Egypt's constitutional monarchy, this short work of fiction offers a rich historical lens through which to explore political transitions in contemporary Egypt.
