Dr. Saeed Khan is a lecturer in the Department of Near Eastern and Asian Studies at Wayne St. University. "Social Media was seen as the vehicle for political and social change during the 2011 Arab Spring. Yet now, the Spring is over and a chilling, authoritarian winter has spread throughout the region. How has social media been suppressed or weaponized by anti-democratic regimes, and what is the future for what was once heralded as the vox populist for democratization? This lecture will examine the shifting sands of new technology and communication in the Middle East." - Dr. Saeed Khan
