Syria and the YouTube Revolution

Here is an audio interview with Mohja Kahf. I found this at PRI’s The World. The description explains that Syrians “have brandished their cell-phone cameras to capture scenes from one of the deadliest uprisings of the Arab spring.”

Kahf, who is an associate professor of comparative literature at the University of Arkansas, tells of following the situation in Syria via YouTube. She also tells of using Facebook and Twitter to post information during a trip to Turkey she took to meet with refugees, which seemingly made her a target of the Syrian government.. You can follow her Twitter feed here.
