On January 22, the Middle East Center hosted a talk by Sarah Eltantawi, Assistant Professor of Comparative Religion and Islamic Studies at Evergreen State College, entitled: “Issues in the Political Theology of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.”

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 presented 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.

Sarah Eltantawi is an Assistant Professor of Comparative Religion and Islamic Studies at Evergreen State College; she is also an Affiliate Researcher of the Middle East Center. This talk was sponsored by the¬†Middle East Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington, and was part of the 2018 Winter Quarter “Voices in Middle East Studies” lecture series.
