Media


Since the start of the Arab Uprisings in 2011, in a spirit of public pedagogy, I have worked independently and with colleagues to produce articles and videos that contribute to public debates and understanding . I also use these resources  in my courses on Global Youth and Citizenship, Social Media and Global Change, and Global Issues in Learning. Below is a selection of articles that have appeared in Jadaliyya, openDemocracy- North Africa and West Asia (NAWA) section,  Mada Masr and Counter Punch. Also included are some "in the news" pieces about various publications and activities.  

For articles in Arabic see the Arabic Publication page and for videos and YouTube channels see the YouTube page.
