Egyptian Art, Public Space, and the Arab Spring: Christine Smith

Christine Smith is a graduate student in the Department of Geography. A recipient of a grant from the National Science Foundation, Smith has been spending months in Egypt learning Arabic and conducting research since 2010. During her trip in summer of 2011, she interviewed a variety of artists, including Ganzeer, an internationally-known street artist.

In this interview, Smith discusses her experiences as a geographer and language student, and shares her perspective on the revolutionary upheaval known as the Arab Spring of 2011. Smith's research will take her to Egypt again this year to conduct research on public space and how individuals cope with the threat of state violence.
