I am Christine Guirguis, an M.A. holder from the American University in Cairo & Assistant Lecturer at Cairo University. I believe in the role of cultural and academic exchange in bringing mutual understanding and talents together. Therefore, since the early phases of my higher education and career, I have been interested in enhancing my language skills and doing cultural exchanges. My main areas of interest are critical and communication studies. I look forward to contributing to the literature on social change through communication with my ongoing research.
