ICA

Focusing on the Green Movement (Iran, 2009), Jasmine Revolution (Tunisia, 2010), Tahrir Square protests (Egypt, 2011), and Gezi Park protests (Turkey, 2013), this course will examine social change and stability in four Muslim-majority societies. We will explore the global and local dynamics underlying these events, and also discuss the scope of social change they inspired. There will be guest lectures by social media representatives, activists, artists about professional and personal challenges posed by responding to or participating in the protests.
