October 21, 2013

St. Paul, Minn. – Classics Prof. Wessam Elmeligi, a native of Alexandria, Egypt, will discuss Egypt’s recent turmoil in a talk at 12 p.m., Thursday, October 31, in Weyerhaeuser Memorial Chapel.
Since 2011 Egypt has gone through much upheaval and turmoil, attempting to overthrow a police state, a military state and religious state, amounting to three regimes in three years. And the chaos is far from over.
The international community, the regional forces, the people themselves with their aspirations and anger, are all involved in one of the most ancient multicultural societies in history.
Elmeligi believes the Middle East and Egypt will go through even more violence before eventually finding peace. His talk will touch on some of the main features of Egyptians’ endeavor to reshape their nation.
