Digital Dissent: Revolutionary Humor Between Old and New Media
Start Date: 2/19/2013Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 2/19/2013End Time: 3:30 PM

Event Description:
In the first offering of the School of Media and Communication Spring Speaker series, Marwan Kraidy will discuss how Arabs may have been the first people—in the 10th century—to use humor against their leaders. In the wake of a historically deep tradition of satire, the Arab uprising gave rise to a rich cornucopia of parody and satire. Marwan Kraidy is professor of global communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. He wrote a book entitled Reality Television and Arab Politics: Contention in Public Life (Cambridge University Press, 2010).
