This volume maps out some of the most significant cultural battles in Egypt focusing specifically on the Mubarak era that has witnessed significant and often contradictory changes within the cultural field in an increasingly globalized context. This book explores the values, paradoxes, and battles that have shaped the Egyptian cultural field at both the local and global levels at the turn of the century. The individual chapters deal with different aspects of both the cultural and the educational fields including literature, film, and mass media as well as the academy. Bringing these individual pieces together in the context of this volume provides for an overview of the cultural politics in Egypt as well as the contests over power, legitimacy, knowledge, language, and representation.
