      OceanView Lecture Series Presents: The Role of Social Media in the Arab Spring

      The Role of Social Media in the Arab Spring
      presented by the OceanView Lecture Series in conjunction with the Falmouth Memorial Library and Camden Conference Community Events
      The 2020 Camden Conference will explore the role of the media in global affairs. Camden Conference Community Events, such as the OceanView Lecture Series, are held in advance of the February conference to begin a community dialogue.

      This session will provide attendees with an insight into how world regimes' use social media in their reactions to popular uprisings and how that reflects the new power of modern technology. Kathleen Howard Sutherland will discuss the various forms of media that were used to promote political action on the streets against authoritarian regimes across the Middle East. This includes a video posted by a young Egyptian woman that made its way across classes and sectors of society to help spark a remarkable mass uprising.

      Kathleen Howard Sutherland, PhD, is an Associate Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Women’s Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio (BGSU) specializing in Middle East Studies. She taught at the American University in Cairo, the city of her birth and long-time residence, prior to joining BGSU. Kathleen’s publications focus on the role of women in public life in Egypt and Morocco, the latter of which was supported by a Fulbright Fellowship in Morocco. She was President of the World Affairs Council of Maine 2016 to 2019 and continues serving on its Board of Directors.
