This event is in collaboration with Deichman Bjørvika and the Centre for Islamic and Middle East Studies, UiO 

When people move to a new country, they bring their home country’s history with them. But what history is that, and how well do you really know those who came before you? Masahat invites you to take a deep dive into history writing and the struggle to own your own, everyday history. Are you sure you actually know the whole story?

LECTURE: “RECLAIMING HISTORY: PEOPLE, POWER, AND ARCHIVES” WITH KHALED FAHMY

How do you take ownership of your own history after being written out of it for generations? In Norway, we have tried to find out how we can democratize history writing and cultural heritage policy to include diverse stories where the majority and minority populations are represented. Whether we have succeeded in this process is up for debate.

In the Arab world, schools, museums, and national archives celebrate the state’s history and “great men”, while the people’s history is erased and forgotten. Based on his research in the Egyptian National Archives, the Egyptian historian and academic Khaled Fahmy will reflect in his lecture on his own attempt to break this silence by telling the story of the average Egyptian.

DISCUSSION: KHALED FAHMY AND MICHELLE TISDEL

After the lecture, Khaled Fahmy will meet Michelle A. Tisdel for a conversation on identity, history writing, and the meeting point the archives, cultural heritage and definitional power in narrating history in Norway and the west. The conversation will be moderated by Rana Issa

FILM SCREENING: “SALATA BALADI” (EGYPTIAN SALAD), (2008, 105 minutes)

This documentary explores the complex cultural and religious heritage of the Egyptian filmmaker Nadia Kamel’s own family. Her mother has Jewish and Christian Italian origins, and converted to Islam when she married Kamel’s Turkish-Ukrainian father. Accompanied by her 80-year-old mother and her 10-year-old Palestinian nephew, Kamel embarks on a journey to Italy and Israel in an attempt to tell the story of an Egypt that no longer exists.
