The disappointing aftermath of the Arab Spring produced pessimism about the spread of liberalism in much of the Muslim world. Sudanese‐​born author Amir Ahmad Nasr will draw from his profoundly personal and critically acclaimed book to discuss the real ramifications of the digital revolution and the social movements it helped unleash. He will make the case for an assertive liberalism and explain how the power of the internet is a force for good in transforming ideas and identities in Islamic societies.
