From Tunisia to Egypt, Yemen, Libya or Syria, civil unrest has shaken the political and social stability of North African and Middle-Eastern countries. Two years into these revolutions, some countries are making strides in establishing a new political order, though not necessarily ones people aspiring for more freedom are necessarily in favor of. To better understand the aftermaths to the upheavals, the University Honors Program is co-sponsoring a lecture series on the Arab Spring, in the Spring 2013.
This series is designed to cast new light on the revolutionary process many Middle-Eastern countries are undergoing, from a diverse perspective including history and popular culture, political science, and media.
