The WIAS “Megacities of Islam: Jakarta & Cairo” research group will hold their first seminar of the 2014 academic year on January 17th (Sat) 2015 at Waseda University.
The Japanese Ministry of Education’s “Megacities of Islam: Jakarta and Cairo” solicited joint research project will hold their first seminar of the 2014 academic year as follows. The event will feature presentations on recent field research in Cairo, and on Cairo as one of the 18 “megacities” of the world. We are also pleased to welcome researcher Adel Shalabi from Egypt, whose presentation will incorporate data acquired through GIS and remote sensing. We also plan to have a presentation on the “soft” aspects of residential areas in Cairo. After these presentations, we plan to continue an ongoing discussion about formal and informal distinctions in the elevated residences of the Nile Delta region. Please join us.
