Centre for the Study of the International Relations of the Middle East and North Africa


Our next event for the Cambridge Media Reading Group is the second for this term and will take place on Thursday the 21st of May from 4.30 pm to 6 pm in room 316, Alison Richards Building.

Ali Sonay will be presenting media-related parts of his PhD project (to be submitted in June) with the title ‘“We are not Politicians, but Revolutionaries”: The Egyptian April 6th Youth Movement and Contemporary Contentious Politics’.

Ali Sonay joined the University of Cambridge - Al Jazeera Media Project at POLIS in April 2015 as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate.  His research interests focus on social movement dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa, and contemporary trends of political thought.  His current research examines the relationship between media and politics in Turkey and Morocco.

All welcome, and do please spread the word to other university members who might be interested to join the group.

We look forward to meeting you.
