This project, which began in February 2012 and concluded with a workshop held in Cairo in December 2012, focused on the (re)emerging traditions of emancipatory politics in the Arab revolutions, connected to the the mass movements in those states. The workshop in Cairo produced a number of innovative pieces for a special section of a peer-reviewed journal. A website for the project, with additional material and interventions, is currently under construction.
