Ehaab Abdou is a PhD Candidate, Department of Integrated Studies in Education at McGill University. Abdous research focuses on questions of inclusion and participation of marginalized groups, whether the inclusion of youths through avenues of civic engagement in Egypt and the Middle East at large, or the inclusion of traditionally marginalized perspectives and narratives within educational systems and curricula in Egypt as well as in North America. His interests generally center on social studies and citizenship education, extracurricular historical narratives, historical consciousness, and critical pedagogy. My doctoral research focuses on how Egyptian students interact with social studies education, and how such interaction influences their sense of citizenship and their civic engagement.
