Anthropology masters students are required to write a 120 page thesis before graduation. That’s 120 pages of death and boredom unless you chose something interesting to write about.
I think I might have found something cool.
I work at AUC’s library on a project documenting the events of the January 25th revolution. You know what’s interesting? I found all these pictures of memorials for those who were killed by police.
Protesters carried around posters mourning those that had died. There were multiple memorials erected throughout the square. Lots of smiling portraits and crying mothers.
So how about this thesis topic: Definitions of Glory – The emotional impact of martyrs during the Egyptian Revolution and how this inspires action.
(Okay, so the title doesn’t exactly fit, but it sounds awesome doesn’t it?)
