Egypt and spread of revolution


Queen’s University history professor Ariel Salzmann is available to talk about the events in Egypt, and she can talk about the parallels and differences between the Iranian revolution of 1979, the recent Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia, and the current Egyptian revolt.

“Would we know a revolution if we see it?” asks Dr. Salzmann, who was a student in Iran in 1978-79 during the Iranian revolution and can discuss the interconnections between the protest movements taking place across the Middle East.

As an expert in Islamic and modern world history, Dr. Salzmann could also address the possible impact of these protest movements on future Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
