1952-2012 60 years in 60 slides & it’ll all make sense ;)

. The Voice of the Arabs radio, from Cairo to the Arab nation . The 1956 & 1967 wars as narrated by Al-Ahram . Filming resistance: guerilla videos, wartime music & the rise of political Islam . Al-Jazeera coverage of the July 2006 war in Lebanon . #Jan25: organising humanitarian aid on social media networks . Post-Arab uprisings documentaries: making sense of a scattered online citizen archive The plan…

A bit of context ocw.nd.edu

“The army takes a non-violent military action. Several high commanders are arrested. (…) Major-general Mohamed Neguib takes over the General Command of the Armed Forces, and announces that the army now works for the benefit of the nation under the rule of the constitution” Al-Ahram | July 24, 1952 The rise of anti- colonial revolutionary pan- Arab nationalism

Gamal Abdel Nasser establishes in 1953 The Voice of the Arabs radio to - “promote Arab unity, and - export the Egyptian revolutionary spirit to the whole of the Arab nation”

“Arab citizens, in all corners of the Arab nation, this is the Voice of the Arabs, Which speaks in your name, and fights for you, and promotes your unity, With you from Cairo, from the heart of our glorious Arab nation, the Voice of the Arabs!” The “call” of the Voice of the Arabs

& When in 1956 Nasser fought his first war against Israel… Al-Ahram | October 30, 1956 “Israel launches an attack against Egypt (…)”

Al-Ahram | November 3, 1956 Al-Ahram did too.. “Egypt salutes its hero Gamal”

Alright, this was the plan… 1952-2012 60 years in 60 slides & it’ll all make sense ;)

Satellite TV & how Nasrallah led in 2006 the war of the nation on Al-Jazeera 5. #Jan25: organising humanitarian aid on social media networks 6. Post-Arab uprising documentaries: making sense of a scattered online citizen archive Until this happened…

But let’s talk media…
