A lecture titled ‘Visual Translations of Nationalist Discourse: Shadi Abdel-Salam’s The Mummy Revisited,’  is scheduled to take place at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC) in Zamalek on 28 January.

The lecture centres on late Egyptian director’s Shadi Abdel-Salam’s Al-Mumiaa (The Mummy: The Night of Counting the Years-1969) and seeks to show how “such a piece of art offers many layers of interpretations, and questions art production in general and its potential universal(ist) message,” as is mentioned on the event’s Facebook page.

As such, the talk will “suggest and discuss a political interpretation (narrative) of El-Momya, in its relations with nationalism and the heritage building process.”

The lecture will be delivered by Sandrine Gamblin, an assistant professor of political science and director of the Middle East Studies Center (MESC) at the American University in Cairo (AUC).

Programme:
Thursday 28 January, 6pm

Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo, 1 Dr. Mahmoud Azmi Street, Zamalek, Cairo
