“Is Democracy Possible
in the Middle East? Exploring the Egyptian Spring” presented by Hala
Ghoneim, Assistant Professor, Languages and Literatures.
What is the state of democracy in the world today? Who are
the advocates of democracy and how do they make their voices known in the
ballot box, in street demonstrations, and via social media channels such as
Twitter and Facebook. Can democracy find root in societies where
dictatorship, political exclusion, corruption and fanaticism have often been
seen to dominate? Join us for the Fall Fairhaven Lecture Series, “Democracy Today: An International
Perspective,” to examine our increasingly democratic world and what it
really means to participate.
lectures are free and open to the public. Links to videos of lectures,
including those from prior series, can be found at http://www.uww.edu/ce/fairhaven. If you have a disability and desire
