The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations invite you to this important panel discussion on 4 December.
2019 has been a turning point in the history of Algeria. The “Hirak” movement has mobilised millions of Algerians in massive unifying peaceful demonstrations. Calls for integrity and true democracy have found expression through slogans, songs and artwork, also drawing on symbols of national unity, Algerian history and transnational identities.
Panellists will draw on their in depth knowledge of the literary and cultural heritage of Algeria to discuss themes of nation, culture, and transnationalism, including root causes of the demonstrations, their nature and what are the political, economic, sociological and cultural implications for the future of this important country.
- Patrick Crowley, Head of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at University College Cork and author of Algeria: Nation, Culture and Transnationalism, 1988-2015
- Latefa Guemar, Research Associate with the University of East London
- Adel Chiheb, Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Jijel
- Chair: Jess Northey, Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations
- Discussant: Meryem Abdelhafid, Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations
