In a panel with three political science professors, students discussed the use and necessity of social media outlets to cause and to help continue the protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen.
Each panelist gave a 25-minute lecture, which presented the uprisings in the Middle East from the point of view of their specialty. After all three panelists finished, they opened the floor to the audience for questions.
After the recent political uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen put the spotlight back in the Middle East, students now have the opportunity to attend a panel to discuss and learn more about the region.
The departments of political science, history, international studies and the AddRan College of Liberal Arts worked to organize Wednesday's panel, which will include three political science professors with different areas of specialty.
Students will be able to ask questions and become more aware of the current issues in the global community.
