This lecture will focus on the role of Egyptian women in the visual public sphere during the inter-war period in the 20th century, as well as their extended role during and after the 2011 Egyptian revolution. The theory of visibility as a site of performativity for social practices and relations between women opens up new perspectives and methods for the exploration of areas previously neglected in the fields of cultural studies and gender and women’s studies.
