“Images, Identity, and Community”

September 9, 2015 @ 5:30 pm

Safeya Sayed Shedeed, the mother of a protester who died after being shot by police officers on January 28, 2011 (a day locals dubbed the "Friday of Rage"), cries as she waits to hear the result of a sentencing trial for former president Hosni Mubarak and former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly who are being tried on charges of corruption and giving orders to kill protesters. ÒI want to avenge my son,Ó she said. ÒWho will get my sonÕs rights back?Ó

As part of High Point University’s Common Experience theme “Just Communities” Laura El-Tantawy will speak about her experiences as a female photographer and address the role of photographic images as a tool to explore identity and community, with an emphasis on Indian farmers and the Arab Spring.
