    <subfield code="a">This article is a study on dignity and the politics of dignity in postcolonial Egypt, and focuses
on the historicity and socioeconomic background of two events: the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis
during the rise of post-independence nationalism and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution during the
Arab Spring. This study reviews the importance of the concept of dignity in philosophy and the
social sciences, specifically pertaining to the development and postcolonial need for dignity and
recognition, which the author terms 'dignition.' The central question here is how the conception
of dignity has evolved between the two events and what the implications are for the consequent
understanding of dignity.</subfield>
