Description

Speaker: Sarah Eltantawi, Assistant Professor, Comparative Religion and Islamic Studies, Evergreen State College; Affiliate Researcher, Middle East Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna  at a time of great transition in Egypt, as the Ottoman Empire succumbed to British colonial rule. This presentation will present some of Dr. Eltantawi's research on the topic of the political theology of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which asks where the theological ends and the political begins for the group.
