Arab Spring links and videos

A few references and loose ends from today’s class. First, Kelsey Ryan, one of our Media Fluency students, wrote an article last year for the Badger Herald about the Arab Spring & social media: she reports on a talk by Anna Day, a UW alum. Give it a read!

Today, I showed part of the BBC Documentary “How Facebook Changed the World: Arab Spring.”

I was also struck by this CNN video, “Arab Spring Two Years Later”—it’s a quick 2 1/2 minutes.
