“Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!”
-Dr. Seuss 
 Writing this thesis has been an individual journey, but it was nothing short of a collectiveeffort. Without constant moral support and academic guidance, I cannot imagine what it would have been like without you all. So congratulations to us all, today is
 Anne Peters
. Where would I be without you?! This has been a year a year of “firsts” forboth of us: for you as a professor and thesis advisor, for me as a writer. Through all of this you have excelled. You’re wisdom, intellectual intuition and dependability have madethis process a remarkable experience for a first-timer. But your vivacity, understanding and camaraderie have made this far more memorable than an academic adventure. Fromthis I emerge with not just a mentor and a thesis, but with a teammate and a friend. Thank you a million times over for everything.
 Wesleyan and the Davenport Committee
. I would like to thank Wesleyan University and the Davenport Committee for first making this thesis possible nearly a year ago. While the journey has been long, and the project has undergone many metamorphoses,the seeds of what later matured into this final product were planted under the auspicesof the Davenport Committee.
Dr. Mustapha and Ingy
. Dr. Mustapha thank you for introducing me to the work of the Brotherhood while studying abroad in Cairo and guiding my research when Ireturned this past summer. Ingy thank you for reminding me to enjoy what is around meeven if in determined pursuit of my research!
Yalla ya habibti! 
107 Cross (Barbie House, and Dan).
My family! Thank you all for tolerating my eccentricity and obsessive compulsiveness, or what others commonly refer to as insanity. Thank you for making our little pink house the best place to come home to after long hours in the library, for spontaneous dance parties and, of course, for beer ball.
Emily and Brett.
 Thank you Emily for scrutinizing the grant that sent me back toEgypt. Thank you Brett for keeping me sane while I was there. You are gems of sisters,and I would be more than willing to wager that I am the luckiest middle child there is.
Mom and Dad.
 Thank you for your unconditional support, even if it requires that youtolerate me trekking half way across the world to do research in Cairo. To Mom foralways being candid; to Dad for reminding me that even when I have an insurmountableamount of work, “I am just the one to do it.”
