This year's Shubbak Festival invites you to witness the creativity, responsiveness and imaginative power of Arab artists to speak to our times. Born out of the rupture across Arab countries ten years ago, the festival programme reflects a fundamental desire to connect to people and ideas across borders in an unsettled world. Taking place within the pandemic, the festival asks how historical events and personal experiences shape our existence.

LSE Middle East Centre & Society for Algerian Studies
This webinar, co-organised with the Society for Algerian Studies, is a launch for Dr. Natalya Vince's latest book The Algerian War, The Algerian Revolution. This book provides a new analysis of the contested history of one of the most violent wars of decolonisation of the twentieth century – the Algerian War/the Algerian Revolution between 1954 and 1962. It brings together an engaging account of its origins, course and legacies with an incisive examination of how interpretations of the conflict have shifted and why it continues to provoke intense debate.
