Film: ESR 15 Mounir Saifi

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

We finish this week strong by presenting you the great film of our ESR Mounir Saifi.



His presentation at the MIDA 2020 summer school discusses an online article that denies the Muslim conquest of Spain around 711. Mounir tries to understand how this counter-narrative of al-Andalus, or Spain under Muslim rule, is used to claim identity space for "Self" by a female author and (a)religious minority member within the Arab world.



Enjoy his work and have a nice weekend!
