Egypt: Unwrapping the Mystery

Who does not know about the Pyramids of Giza? Or the ancient Egyptian pharaohs? But what about the modern nation of around 100 million (mostly young) people? Let’s do a deep dive and go from its 6,000-year-old history all the way to the present, and try to understand how modern and traditional cultures shape the country and its people. From the role of Islam, to the Arab spring, to the complicated identity of being both Arab and African, there is lot to uncover, together with our Egyptian guest.

**This workshop will be held on Zoom**
