New Media /Alternative Politics: Communication technologies and political change in the Middle East and Africa
17:00, 14 October - 15:00, 16 October, 2010
CRASSH, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge
The spread of digital technologies in the Middle East and Africa has generated the view that 'new media' open up political spaces for dissent, activism and emancipation. This conference offers an opportunity to critically reassess these assumptions. “New media, alternative politics” will bring together researchers, academics, activists, journalists and policy makers to discuss whether and how new media empower an alternative politics and mobilise political change.
