AVACGIS Faculty Series

Presentation by Dr. Nathaniel Greenberg : Information Warfare and the New Middle East

Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies

Monday, October 21, 2019 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
Enterprise Hall, 318

Nathaniel Greenberg will discuss his new book, "How Information Warfare Shaped the Arab Spring: the Politics of Narrative in Tunisia and Egypt", (EUP 2019). Through detailed analyses of Russian, U.S. and Arab information operations in North Africa, Greenberg argues the preservation of a functional democratic sphere in an age of misinformation will require coequal investment in the algorithms of digital-detection technology and the ‘aesthetics of communication,’ a renewed sense of awareness in the power of art and rhetoric to shape the way we see the world. Nathaniel Greenberg, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor and head of the Arabic Program at George Mason University. In 2011 he wrote about the Arab Spring from Egypt for The Seattle Times and from 2012-2013 he was a postdoctoral fellow in Strategic Communications for a federally-funded project examining public discourse in post-revolutionary North Africa. "How Information Warfare Shaped the Arab Spring" is Dr. Greenberg’s third book. His previous works include "Islamists of the Maghreb" (Routledge 2018) with Jeffry R. Halverson. And "The Aesthetic of Revolution in the Film and Literature of Naguib Mahfouz" (Lexington 2014), winner of the 2014 ACLA Helen Tartar First Book Award.
