Professor of History Zeinab Abul-Magd participated in the events in Egypt as a political activist and researched its outcomes as an academic. She has just published an article titled "Diaries of a Surveilled Citizen after a Failed Revolution in Egypt," reflecting on her experience with what she describes as a failed a revolution at the latest issue of the International Journal of Middle East Studies . The cover image of the same issue is a photo of her own, portraying the children of Cairo's slums after a new military regime moved them to desert areas in the outskirts of the discontented city.
