Moderated by Heather J. Sharkey, the event will feature Kitroeff in conversation with Weston Bland, doctoral candidate in Penn’s Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and Alon Tam, the Rabin-Shvidler Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia and Fordham Universities. This event will take place online, on April 15, at 11am EST. The event is free but registration is required.

The Modern Egyptian Studies Forum is an online event series and scholarly community dedicated to the study of modern Egypt. Events organized by the Forum have included book talks, thematic conversations, and discussions on archival access, pedagogy, and publishing. It welcomes scholars at various career stages, from graduate students to emeritus professors. For recordings of recent events see Events. Its sponsor is the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations (NELC) at the University of Pennsylvania.
