The Arab Revolts-One Year Timeline

March 19, 2012

Whenever the International Studies program at Miami University hosts a Grayson-Kirk lecturer, we assign appropriate texts to all our students, especially in the ITS 201 “Introduction to International Studies” classes. As a television journalist who has not written a book, Ben Wedeman’s visit posed an interesting problem. We had clips and blog posts and op-eds, but no book or lengthy academic articles.

I posed that problem to ITS major Jack Nelson, who was doing an independent study with me, and we came up with a timeline of the Arab Revolts–Jack labeled it “Arab Spring”–on Prezi, and embedding links to Ben’s videos and writings.

So that’s what we did. You can read it here or cut and paste this url into your browser:
