Writing, Storytelling and Psychodrama: An Alphabet of Resistance
Looking back at 24 years of fiction writing, storytelling and psychodrama work, Elmougy intends to review intersections among her tracks of work. She has come to realize that everything she does carries the spirit of resistance.In her talk, she will be explaining what she means by “resistance” and what it is like to be on this journey at this particular time in Egypt’s history.

She has published two short story collections and three novels: The Hill’s Musk, 2017, Noon, 2007 (winner of the 2007 Cavafis Award), Daria, 1999 (winner of the 1998 Sharjah Girls’ Clubs Prize for Women’s Creative Writing). Elmougy is an associate professor of English Literature and American Studies at the Department of English Language and Literature at Cairo University.
