لماذا لم يثر الصعيد؟ محاولة أولية للفهم ودعوة للنقاش

   إن القراءة التقليدية للصعيد تتجاهل التغيرات التي شهدتها المنظومة والبنية الاجتماعية، وفي العلاقات والتراتبية الاجتماعية وحتى هيكل السلطة المحلية لصالح جماعات وليدة سياسات الانفتاح والتحول الاقتصادي، كما ذكر الباحث المصري عمرو عدلي في أحد تعليقاته التي قارن فيها بين أوضاع الصعيد والأوضاع الاقتصادية ...  Read More »

Before Theory: In Memory of Janet Abu-Lughod
