This session will depart from Mai Taha and Sara Salem’s text “Social reproduction and empire in an Egyptian century” (Radical Philosophy 204, Spring 2019, pp. 47–54) that builds a critical view on the formation of social reproduction in post-colonial Egypt, and will bring in excerpts of texts from other Egyptian feminists writers and activists.

The material will be sent to the participants upon registration.

Mai Taha is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). She has written on law and imperialism, human rights, labour struggles, gender and care work, and social reproduction theory in the Middle East.

Marwa Arsanios is an artist, filmmaker and researcher who reconsiders politics of the mid-twentieth century from a contemporary perspective, with a particular focus on gender relations, urbanism and industrialisation. She approaches research collaboratively and seeks to work across disciplines. Solo shows include: Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (2021); Skuc Gallery, Ljubljana (2018); Beirut Art Center (2017); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2016); Kunstinstituut Melly FKA Witte de With, Rotterdam (2016) and Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon (2015).
