Brave new world of revolution?

2011-02-22

Queen’s University history professor Ariel Salzmann is available to talk about the wave of revolution spreading from Tunisia and Egypt across the Middle East.

“Is this a Middle Eastern event or is it a global event?” asks Dr. Salzmann, who was a student in Iran in 1978-79 during the Iranian revolution and can discuss the interconnections between and significance of the political uprisings and unrest happening across the Middle East. “Globalization has rewritten the rule book for revolutions and ushered in a brave new world of political mobilization.”

Dr. Salzmann teaches a modern Middle Eastern survey course and was recently awarded a prestigious interdisciplinary fellowship from the Centre for Anatolian Civilizations at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey.
