ASOCIACION DE HISPANISTAS EGIPCIOS

In 1968, at the request of the then Cultural Counselor of the Embassy of Spain in Cairo, Mr. Ángel Ballesteros, the Association of Hispanists of Egypt was created. Then it consisted of about 15 members all students of Spanish and some already had doctorate in Spain. The President was Dr. Mahmud Ali Makki but given the situation of the majority of the members occupied with their studies, few activities were carried out. In 1999 and due to changes in the statutes of the NGOs in Egypt, and since the Association is one more for the Egyptian Government, they were forced to normalize their situation to be able to work.
Once normalization was completed, there were new elections to elect the new administration that has 9 members, two of them Spanish, as well as the election of the new President that turned out to be Dr. NAGWA GAMAL MEHREZ who has been reelected again in 2007 after having gone through another readjustment to the new norms of The Egyptian State … Today the Association has approximately 90 faculty members from the four State Universities of the Country: Ein-Shams, Cairo, AL Azhar, Helwan and El Minia. In 2008, the professors who teach Spanish language classes in the schools adhered.
The Association has three committees: Executive, scientific and social administration. The field of work: Literature, Linguistics and Translation, Organization of conferences with the collaboration of the Cervantes Institute of Cairo, as well as congresses.
One of the main objectives of the Association is to strengthen relations with the Embassy and the Universities of Spain. For this reason, four agreements have been signed with the Universities of; Granada, De La Mancha and Alcalá de Henares, thus getting an exchange of teachers and students to study in both countries and get to know each other better.

CAIRO UNIVERSITY

The national university, since its emergence until being converted to a government university, managed to provide suitable atmosphere to academic education and achieve scientific and cultural communication between itself and high schools. Therefore, students of high schools joined the university as well as their theoretical study at their schools. Prominent teachers of Dar El-ulum and El-Azhar were mandated to teach at the university. The university also got assistance from scientific competencies of men of law and justice from outside high schools.
Free study system helped in achieving scientific and cultural communication through providing chance of listening to lectures in any sort of knowledge. Therefore, halls of lectures were crowded with students who came to get further knowledge without aspiration to get scientific degree. The university’s library also played an important role in achieving this communication. At the first phase, the university established rigorous rules of secular, rational knowledge; this was shown in Saad Zaghloul’s criticism of Ahmed Zaky’s sermon, in which he exaggerated in talking about Islam’s glory, at the occasion of inaugurating the university, Saad Zaghloul considered that incompatible with the occasion of inaugurating the university which has no religion, but science. A look to the programs of study at the university makes it obvious that the university’s trend is merely secular and that it is committed to instill values of science and scientific thinking among its students and train them on the assets of scientific research and its curricula at the hands of Egyptian and foreign teachers.
This does not mean that the secular attitude of the university was not met by criticism from conservative elements; Egyptian press was full of articles that attacked the university and invited to make the study ((Islamic)), and other articles that questioned the feasibility of this type of education in Egypt, however, the university has been able be careful not to get involved in a clash with the conservative trend which may have cost the university its very existence.
This scientific and cultural communication that the university achieved in the first phase of its lifetime and this accumulation of academic experience made the National Egyptian University a corner stone to establish a government university in 1925.
