What: “Voices of the New Arab Public: Iraq, Al-Jazeera, and Middle East Politics Today"

Who: Marc Lynch, Associate Professor of Political Science, Williams College; Author of Voices of the New Arab Public and State Interests and Public Spheres: The International Politics of Jordan's Identity; and he maintains the Abu Aardvark blog, a widely read running commentary on the Arab media, American public diplomacy, and Arab popular culture

Event: Al-Jazeera and other Arab satellite television stations have transformed Arab politics over the last decade. These new Arab media have challenged the status quo by encouraging open debate about Iraq, Palestine, Islamism, and other vital issues. These public arguments have reshaped the realm of political possibility in the Middle East. In his new book, Marc Lynch draws on interviews conducted in the Middle East and analyses of satellite television programs, newspapers, and public opinion polls to examine the nature and influence of the new Arab public sphere.
