<nettime> A (Working) Arab Spring Reading List


I thought some people on this list may be interested....

A group of us (Patrick McCurdy, David Brake & Zeynep Tufekci) have
begun to compile academic resources (articles, special issues and
podcasts) on the role of media and communication in the Arab
Spring.The aim is to provide potentially relevant theoretical work
(for example on the uses of ICTs for political action or on the media
and activism) and/or parallel empirical studies that can be used for
comparison (eg the use of twitter in Iran in 2009).

The list does not claim to be comprehensive, but is intended as an
open resource for students and teachers interested in this topic.
Please feel free to share and use this document for noncommercial
purposes.

The list is both a Google document:

And, many of the readings have also been added to Zotero too:

this reading list, get in touch.
