AFTER THE ARAB SPRING

July 6 2011, 07:00pm

The world has been caught by surprise as youthful revolutions have swept across the Middle East toppling entrenched dictators in the so-called “Arab Spring.” But as the dust settles there are mixed results in terms of democratic progress and reform. Dr. Rabab el-Mahdi, one of the organizers of the Egyptian revolution and a professor of Political Science at American University in Cairo, and Jawad Nabulsi, a community organizer who was active in Tahrir Square, join us.

Hammer Forum is moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, author, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and host of the radio programs Background Briefing, Sundays at 11AM, and The Daily Briefing, Monday through Thursday at 5PM, on KPFK 90.7 FM.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets are required, and are available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Limit one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
