Wadah Khanfar @ Media Lab, Friday, 2/24, 6pm

On Friday, February 24 at 6pm, we will welcome Wadah Khanfar, president of the Sharq Forum and former director general of the Al Jazeera network. Khanfar will give a talk entitled, "One Year After Mubarak: The Past and Future of the 'Arab Spring.'"

Ethan Zuckerman has written a blog post providing an overview of Al Jazeera's role in the Arab Spring, and will take part in a conversation with Khanfar after his talk, along with Joi Ito, (director of the MIT Media Lab) and Mohamed Nanabhay (head of online at Al Jazeera English).

For those of you who can't join us in person, the talk will be webcast, and you can also join the discussion on Twitter (#MLTalks). More details here.
