dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the relationships between citizenship, space, and the state, using the Zabaleen community in Cairo as a lens of analysis. The thesis argues that citizenship is both an institution and a practice of exclusion. It explores the social, political, and economic exclusions that the Zabaleen experience due to their position in a state of exception. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship I would like to thank my supervisor, Dr. Shourideh Molavi, for her help in this thesis writing process. Your guidance and feedback have been invaluable to me. I would also like to thank my committee, Dr. Andrew Delatolla and Dr. Mirjam Edel for their insight in improving my thesis. Dr. James Sunday, thank you for supporting me as an incoming CMEPS student and helping me stay sane and on track. To my husband, Aly Sultan, thank you for being beside me every day and through every step of this process. I wouldn't be where I am or who I am today without you. Thank you Vanessa Lawrence for giving me the friendship and support I needed to work on this thesis while I was in Egypt and for continuing to be there for me when we went back abroad. Lastly, thank you Dr. Marilyn Plumlee. Marilyn, I wouldn't have stayed in Egypt back in 2016 if I hadn't met you, and none of this would have been possible without you. You inspire me, every single day, to be more adventurous, open to new experiences, and to "bloom where I am planted". Thank you. en_US
