  • Profile

    Nermin is a PhD researcher in the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM). She is part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie INT Project ‘CHEurope’ . Nermin's research is concerned with social media cultures in post-revolutionary Egypt. Her project examines how heritage discourses are co-produced over social media platforms to negotiate national and societal grievances. I explore how groups of Egyptians mobilize the photographic legacy of the 19th and 20th century over Facebook and YouTube, creating online memorials of what they perceive as the nation’s “good old days” or "al-zaman al-jamīl". During her doctoral project nermin was a visiting reach fellow in the ZMO-Berlin (Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient). 

    Prior to joining the university of Amsterdam Nermin taught for five years between the German University in Cairo (GUC) and the Arab Academy for Science and Technology (AASTMT). Meanwhile, she worked as an architect and an urbanist in various heritage managment projects in Cairo funded by URHC-UNESCO and the Egyptian government. Nermin was also a part of vairous emerging new media practices and alternative learning inititaives in Egypt (2014-2017). Her MSc research project "The maps of Cairo and the Making of the Modern State of Egypt: 1798 to the early 20th century"  was awarded the GERSS-DAAD scholarship in HTW-Berlin.
