About this product
- DescriptionThe Great Social Laboratory charts the development of the human sciences-anthropology, human geography, and demography-in late nineteenth- and twentieth-century Egypt. Tracing both intellectual and institutional genealogies of kwledge production, this book examines social science through a broad range of texts and cultural artifacts, ranging from the ethgraphic museum to architectural designs to that pinnacle of social scientific research- the article. Omnia El Shakry explores the interface between European and Egyptian social scientific discourses and interrogates the boundaries of kwledge production in a colonial and post-colonial setting. She examines the complex imperatives of race, class, and gender in the Egyptian colonial context, uncovering the new modes of governance, expertise, and social kwledge that defined a distinctive era of nationalist politics in the inter- and post-war periods. Finally, she examines the discursive field mapped out by colonial and nationalist discourses on the racial identity of the modern Egyptians.
