Description or Abstract
The 70s stand for the Hippie movement, the music, the fashion, international politics and a change in the way people were thinking. The most significant symbols were the Beatles, bell bottom pants, tight shirts, mini skirts, the Vietnam War, student activism and free love. But how was the Middle East experiencing that time? What was Egypt, the opinion leading nation of the region, going through. This audio documentary takes a look at one of the most significant institutions of Egypt: The American University in Cairo (AUC). Interviewees include Mahmoud El Lozy, Samia Mehrez and Louis Greiss. Tune in and find out, what exactly campus life was like in the 70s and how students dealt with the '73 war.
