Egypt Politics and Revolution

Collected by: American University in Cairo

Archived since: Feb, 2011

Description:

The Egypt Politics and Revolution collection provides access to web content related to the contemporary Egyptian political scene, documenting political developments and ideologies, leading players, and various forms of expression. A major focus (and the inception point for the collection) is the January 25, 2011 revolution and its aftermath, from the time of the initial 18 Days of demonstrations at Cairo’s Tahrir Square to subsequent periods of protest and successive changes in government and presidential leadership, through 2013 and 2014. (Web archiving during those periods was an initiative of AUC’s University on the Square: Documenting Egypt’s 21st Century Revolution project). A range of politically-oriented activity is covered, from electoral campaigns to dissent, activism, and commemoration. Web content in a variety of forms is captured, including blogs, institutional websites, social media, and online news coverage.
