These two panels are part of a series by the collective project "Ten Years On: Mass Protests and Uprisings in the Arab World." This is the first in a year-long series of events and knowledge production by the collective. Each of the panels addresses reflections by the speakers on the politics and knowledge production related to the uprisings during the past ten years. This first event is intended to herald the yearlong conversation/activities.
Look out for an event in February on teaching the Arab Uprisings and an event in March on archives and the Arab Uprisings.

Ten Years On
Mass Protests and Uprisings in the Arab World
December 17, 2020 marked the tenth anniversary of the start of the Arab uprisings in Tunisia. Beginning in 2011, mass uprisings swept North Africa and the Middle East, spreading from the shores of Tunisia to Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, and the Eastern Province of the Arabian Peninsula. A “second wave” of mass protests and uprisings manifested during 2019 in Sudan, Algeria, Lebanon, and Iraq. The persistence of demands for popular sovereignty even in the face of re-entrenched authoritarianism, imperial intervention, and civil strife is a critical chapter in regional and global history.
