Rice to Present at Global Issues Colloquium

The Global Issues Colloquium will feature Marc Rice, associate professor of music, to present “The Revolution will be YouTubed: Global Protest, the New Media and Music” at 7 p.m. Nov. 17 in Magruder Hall 2001.

Rice’s presentation will examine how music videos uploaded via the new media are being used to communicate, organize and give voice to the issues and protests occurring in Iran, Libya, Egypt and elsewhere. Recent political uprisings, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, have been accompanied by the use of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The new media has allowed the global community to witness these protests, once shielded from the outside world.
