This week I gave a couple a couple talks at Rutgers University. I was invited by Dr. Kurt Shock, who is an associate professor of sociology and global affairs at Rutgers and is one of ICNC’s academic advisors. I first spoke in his colloquium course, where I gave a presentation titled, The Social Revolution: Digital Media, Cyber-Pragmatism, and Nonviolent Movements, which I will outline in greater detail later in this post. The second presentation I gave was to his undergraduate class on social movements, where we looked at the role of the internet and social media in social movements more broadly. In both presentations I used the uprising in Egypt as a case study in exploring these themes.
