Speaker: Benjamin Koerber, Associate Professor of Arabic Language and Literature, Rutgers University

Talk Title: “Reading Conspiracy in Cairo”

Talk Abstract:  Conspiracy Theory in the Arab world has come to be associated with the rhetoric of Islamist extremists and authoritarian regimes. Yet its principle tropes - omnipotent secret societies, impending apocalypse, heroes who crack codes - have recurred in Arabic literature as well. A number of Egyptian authors have crafted potent narratives of conspiracy that have remained unexamined until now.
