This conference aims to shed light on the origins of the events in Tahrir Square, the deposing of President Mubarak, the changes currently under way, and the future of Egypt and the Middle East.
"Egypt in Transition" will also be the 14th issue in the Social Research Transitions Series, which began in 1990 by examining the transitions in Eastern and Central Europe following the collapse of communism. Since then, Social Research has explored transitions in South Africa, China, sub-Saharan Africa, and India. Social Research: An International Quarterly is the flagship journal of The New School for Social Research.
This conference is the 27th in the Social Research conference series, begun by Professor Arien Mack in 1988. Arien Mack is the Alfred and Monette Marrow Professor of Psychology at The New School for Social Research. She has been the editor of Social Research since 1970.
