Social anthropologists Linda Herrera and Daniele Cantini discuss their recently published books, Educating Egypt and Bounded Knowledge. In addition to sharing insights from their work, they discuss and invite conversation about the challenges and opportunities inherent in researching and writing about education. This conversation tackles the methodological, political, and ethical challenges of doing research in Egypt, as well as the need for collaborations and the opportunities offered by this field of study. Both authors advance theories about citizenship, processes of social transformation, and the contested terrain of learning and knowledge production.
