Whether graffiti, poetry, songs, or humor, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East were more than just political events; they were cultural and artistic productions. How did cultural and artistic products figure in the revolts? How have artists in turn been affected by the political changes underway? Panel includes Pete Moore (CWRU - Moderator), George Trumbull IV (Dartmouth College), Nada Shabout, (University of North Texas), Jessica Winegar (Northwestern University), and Ted Swedenburg (University of Arkansas).

This event is co-sponsored by the CWRU College of Arts and Sciences, The Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle East Studies and The Nusri Chair in Islamic Studies, John Carroll University.
