The University on the Square: Documenting Egypt's 21st Century Revolution digital collection features oral histories, photographs, video recordings, and visual art that document the January 25th Revolution. The digital collection preserves the history of the 18 Days in Egypt and beyond by collecting content from activists, participants, and observers from the American University in Cairo as well as members of the larger Egyptian and global communities.
University on the Square: Documenting Egypt’s 21st Century Revolution is a participatory archives initiative developed by the American University in Cairo in February 2011. The digital collection continues to grow as project contributors share their experiences through oral history interviews and donations.
The University on the Square: Documenting Egypt's 21st Century Revolution project was made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
