Abstract and Keywords
The investigation followed in this chapter attempts to indirectly upend the Orientalist narration of Arab and Tunisian political history. It seeks to follow a trajectory that presents Tunisia’s prismatic quest for liberation and renewal. It is within this historicization and contextualization that the chapter uncovers stories that enable a reinterpretation of the country’s ability to spark the moral flames of protest, liberation, and renewal, with special reference to the country’s Arab Spring. Here the verve of politics and an ethos of liberation and renewal come together in a gripping historical moment.
