PROF. MICHELLE PACE WILL PARTICIPATE IN CMES RESEARCH SEMINAR: REVOLUTION AND COUNTER-REVOLUTION IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA
Michelle Pace, Paola Rivetti, Francesco Cavartorta, Ziad Abu Mustafa and Muhammad Shehada will give a talk on “Revolution and Counter-Revolution in the Middle East and North Africa”, online research seminar organized by the Centre for Advanced Middle Eastern Studies – Lund University.
They will discuss the current political phase in South West Asia and North Africa (SWANA) or Middle East and North Africa (MENA) by contextualising it in global politics.
First, the transformations of the nation state and neoliberal capitalism are discussed along with the mobilisational strategies shared among social movements in the region, Europe and North America, Africa, and Latin America. Second, the panellists discuss how such transnational developments have influenced the scholarship on SWANA/MENA politics, highlighting a number of epistemological breaks in the content and process of knowledge production.
