Speaker(s): Professor Charles Hirschkind

Recorded on 8 November 2012 at Old Theatre, Old Building

A look at the politics of the Salafi movement in Egypt in relation to changing practices of religious media use. The movement is the political face of a much broader and diverse current within Egyptian society, one grounded less in a specific tradition within Islam than in a grassroots movement centred on ethical reform.

Charles Hirschkind is associate professor of anthropology, UC Berkeley.
