Symposium “The Revolutionary Public Sphere: Contention, Communication and Culture in the Arab Uprisings” — Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphie (Etats-Unis), 10/04/2014
Scholars from around the world will gather for the Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication`s inaugural symposium. Putting primary sources in dialogue with theory, we seek to understand aesthetic experimentation and stylistic innovation in this revolutionary public sphere. Together, we will strive to shed light on the ways in which various revolutionary and counter-revolutionary activists and regimes have attracted, upheld, and directed popular attention to themselves and to their opponents. Our exploration of contention, communication and culture in the Arab uprisings will yield conceptual tools to understand revolutionary public spheres at large.
