Join us for a Teach-in on the Arab Revolutions

Sparked by the Tunisian revolution and boosted by the Egyptian revolt, popular uprisings are sweeping the Arab world. The revolutionary process unleased is transforming power relations in the region. How did it start? Why is it spreading? How do the uprisings differ? What is at stake for the U.S.? Where will it lead?

Dr. Stephen Zunes is Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco, where he chairs the Program in Middle Eastern Studies. He has written three books on the Middle East.

Dr. Mayy ElHayawi is Assistant Professor at 'Ayn Shams University in Egypt, and presently a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Stanford University.

Dr. Khalil Barhoum coordinates the Stanford University program in Arabic and African Languages and Literatures.

Dr. Sharat G. Lin is an eyewitness to the uprising in Egypt. He is president of the San Jose Peace & Justice Center, and has written numerous articles on the Middle East.
