Souls
Grant details: AQ-234985-16
Title: Souls
Director: Rafael F. Narvaez
Producer: Rafael F. Narvaez
Abstract: Do we have a soul? Is it material, like air, or immaterial, like a shadow? Are souls feminine and masculine or do they remove their gender as they exit the body? If souls resemble the body, can they be, say, blue-eyed, or blind, or white, or black? Are there infant souls in the afterworld? Do they grow up? When we sleep, does the soul leave the body to enter into an otherworldly order that we experience as a dream? Can it be trapped there, to be sold on the black market? Where does it go after death? To the bush, the domain of spirits? To the underworld, where it loses its memory? Is there a place reserved for the souls of soldiers and one for those of philosophers? Can the soul be tortured? Are stars souls? Is the soul a bird? Questions and beliefs like these have marked people’s identities, influenced how we see others, and how we divide the world. Spanish colonists, for instance, often thought that “Indians” did not have a soul, which partly explains the savagery of the colonial process. In the West, a body/soul rhetoric has evolved along with features of our civilization, a process that has marked, in particular, the humanities and the arts. (Why is medieval plainchant, for example, devoid of beat? Because beat, the clergy argued, leaps to the feet and to the hip to pollute the soul.) Changes in beliefs about the soul have also marked how we perceive reality, and even how we experience our body. Consider sexuality, for instance, an embodied experience historically regarded as a threat to the soul. The world has seen age-old battles for the control of this body/soul rhetoric; battles that, still waged today, need our attention because they ultimately are about the social construction of reality and of features of civilization itself.

I think that's another thing that this book, I hope, teaches our children: being willing to take risks because the rewards on the other side of those risks can be phenomenal."

Director: Walter B. Edgar
Producer: Alfred Turner
Abstract: National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis called the Reconstruction Era an "often-ignored or misunderstood period in our rich history" but one that bridges the nation's Civil War and its civil rights movement. Now, the Park Service has begun chronicling the historic sites in South Carolina that tell the Reconstruction story. Michael Allen, a community partnership specialist with the National Parks Service in Charleston, will be working with groups and communities interested in taking part. He joins Dr. Edgar, along with Dr. Brent Morris, professor of history at USC Beaufort and Director of the NEH Summer Institute "America's Reconstruction: The Untold Story" to talk about facts and myths of this important period of American history.

The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent, 1400 - 1500
Grant details: FA-57954-14
Title: The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent, 1400 - 1500
Writer: Barbara Haggh-Huglo
Director: Yale Institute of Sacred Music
Producer: Yale Institute of Sacred Music
Abstract: The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent 1400-1500 Did the laity control worship at church altars outside the main choir in Ghent in the century before the Reformation? How can these lay liturgies be categorized? Were they always votive? In this presentation, I explore the liturgies of a variety of lay foundations and the extent to which they were personal, private, communal, or of political consequence. I argue for a different understanding of late-medieval liturgy, one that is mindful of those physically present or not and their role, and of such events as bread distributions, or essential objects, including paintings. Discussed are the liturgy for the dead and for series of votive masses, for the Mandatum, and for two foundations of wider import, that for a mass before the Adoration of the Lamb, and for a new Marian feast, the 'Recollectio festorum beate Marie virginis.'

African North American Genealogy Across the US-Canada Border with Adam Arenson
Grant details: FB-56857-13
Title: African North American Genealogy Across the US-Canada Border with Adam Arenson
Director: Bernice Benett
Producer: Bernice Benett
Abstract: Dr. Adam Arenson discusses his ongoing research about African North Americans—those men and women, born free or enslaved, who crossed or re-crossed the U.S.-Canada border in the era of emancipation, Civil War, and Reconstruction. We will discuss how difficult it is to determine how many fugitive slaves and free blacks were in Canada; the history of the more than 600 African North Americans who returned to fight for the U.S. Colored Troops; the thousands more who returned to the United States in the decades that followed; the hundreds of men, women, and children who traveled north to Canada after emancipation; and even the reason Civil War records are filled with fake claims of Canadian and other citizenship.

Mapping the Medieval World in Islamic Cartography
Grant details: FB-57108-13
Title: Mapping the Medieval World in Islamic Cartography
Writer: Karen Pinto
Director: Nir Shafir
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Hundreds of cartographic images of the world and its regions exist scattered throughout collections of medieval and early modern Arabic, Persian, and Turkish manuscripts. The sheer number of these extant maps tells us that from the thirteenth century onward, when these map-manuscripts began to proliferate, visually depicting the world became a major preoccupation of medieval Muslim scholars. However, these cartographers did not strive for mimesis, that is, representation or imitation of the real world. These schematic, geometric, and often symmetrical images of the world are iconographic representations—‘carto-ideographs’—of how medieval Muslim cartographic artists and their patrons perceived their world and chose to represent and disseminate this perception. In this podcast, we sit down with Karen Pinto to discuss the maps found in the cartographically illustrated Kitab al-Masalik wa-al-Mamalik (Book of Routes and Realms) tradition, which is the first known geographic atlas of maps, its influence on Ottoman cartography, and how basic versions of these carto-ideographs were transported back to villages and far-flung areas of the Islamic empire.

Why do Americans say eggplant and sidewalk, rather than aubergine and pavement? Why does your spellchecker insist it's 'color' not 'colour'? Do Americans complain about the 'Britishisms' creeping into use in the States as much as we complain about Americanisms in use in the UK? Does it really matter if British and American English begin to be used interchangeably and could we stem the flow if we tried?

After 150 Years, 'Little Women' Still Resonates
Grant details: FZ-231734-16
Title: After 150 Years, 'Little Women' Still Resonates
Writer: ILANA MASAD
Abstract: About once a year I turn to one particularly tattered book, its red cover worn, its two halves taped together after falling apart from frequent use years ago. Like so many others through generations, I return to this book again and again, called to it by some inexplicable yearning for a life I never had, a nostalgia for a time I didn't experience, and a desire to learn and mature with the characters. Though I have never been able to choose a "favorite book," I have always known that if I had to be stuck on a desert island — with only one book to bring with me — it would be this one: Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott. Each time I read it, I discover something new and wonderful while simultaneously communing with the familiar and beloved.

But the novel is more than just a horror classic. It also asks questions about the ethics of scientific and technological innovation–questions that we still struggle with today. On this episode of Examining Ethics, we explore one of these questions: is it wrong for scientists and innovators to work or create in isolation? First, we introduce you to “sociability,” an important, behavior-shaping idea in the scientific community of the nineteenth century. Then, we discuss whether scientists and innovators working today have similar ethical obligations. We cover things like the importance of transparency in the ethics of scientific and technological innovation. We also explore the value of democratic oversight to the world of science and technology.

Abstract: If the semantic web becomes an everyday reality, we’d have a web that would produce better answers for us. But what if you’re not sure of the question in the first place? Aditi Muralidharan wanted to know if it was possible to create a search engine that will intuitively know as it’s searching what you actually need. Nora speaks to Aditi about her project WordSeer – a search tool that analyzes language patterns in an effort to build intuition into the search engine. (Runs 5:57)

Execution Ballads
Grant details: HD-51581-12
Title: Execution Ballads
Writer: Una McIlvenna
Director: Robyn Johnston
Producer: Robyn Johnston
Abstract: This truly gruesome program explores the phenomenon of the execution ballad—the printed pamphlet telling, in song, the story of the crime and of the condemned. These songs tell of the descent into vice, give account of the crime in all its appalling detail and purport to give voice to the true repentance of the doomed sinner. In what was a profitable line of business for early printers, the songs were declaimed by the ballad seller and spruiked to the crowd who’d gathered to see the offender put to death.

Top of Mind "Mormon Colonies: Mormons in the US-Mexico Borderlands" (32:58)
Grant details: PY-258635-18
Title: Top of Mind "Mormon Colonies: Mormons in the US-Mexico Borderlands" (32:58)
Abstract: The FBI has joined the investigation into the murder of three women and six children in Northern Mexico last week by suspected cartel gunmen. The victims were dual US-Mexico citizens from a community that identifies as “Mormon” but is not affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Last week on Top of Mind, we spoke with an expert on the independent –or fundamentalist –Mormon communities in Mexico –some who practice polygamy, some who don’t. There’s also a community of Mormons who are actively affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have been rooted for generations on both sides of the US-Mexico border. They are a fascinating example of the way many people living at border see it as a fluid boundary, not at all clear-cut.

Between European and Ottoman: Hellenic Grand Dragomans, Roman Subjects, and Classical Ruins at the Turn of the 18th Century
Grant details: RA-50003-03
Title: Between European and Ottoman: Hellenic Grand Dragomans, Roman Subjects, and Classical Ruins at the Turn of the 18th Century
Writer: Leal, Dr. Karen
Abstract: By the nineteenth century, philhellenic Europeans had appropriated the classical Greek world as their distinct cultural patrimony. However, sources composed in the late 1600s and early 1700s by Ottoman dignitaries, Greek Orthodox intellectuals, and French and English travelers reveal a more fluid period when the Greco-Roman tradition exerted an influence on the perceptions all these (sometimes overlapping) groups had of themselves and one another. Greek, Ottoman, French, and English literary texts, archival records, and visual sources thus reveal the cross-cultural currents and ties connecting members of the Ottoman intelligentsia with their counterparts in Paris and London in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Lecture given by Karen Leal, Kluge Fellow.

Ottoman History Podcast no. 185, Turks Across Empires
Grant details: RA-50040-06
Title: Ottoman History Podcast no. 185, Turks Across Empires
Writer: James H. Meyer
Writer: Nir Shafir
Writer: Ella Fratantuono
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Pan-Turkism rose to prominence as a political ideology during the early twentieth century, heavily influenced by Muslim intellectuals that traveled between the Russian and Ottoman spheres. For many of these figures such as Yusuf Akçura, Ismail Gasprinski, and Ahmet Agaoglu, Pan-Turkism became the political movement that defined their legacies. However, as James Meyer explains in his new monograph entitled Turks Across Empires, these intellectuals engaged with numerous other issues of the period well before becoming the Pan-Turkists they are remembered as today. In this episode, Nir Shafir and Ella Fratantuono talk to James Meyer about this research and explore what the history of the Pan-Turkists tells us about the broader sociopolitical connections between Russia and the Ottoman Empire.

Abstract: Were Ottoman courts just? Bogaç Ergene discusses this basic question in this podcast by forging a new path beyond the earlier views of the justice system as inherently fickle and capricious - immortalized in Weber’s concept of kadijustiz - and the idealistic views of Ottoman courts as a site of equal and fair treatment for all. Drawing on the results of research for his forthcoming publication with Metin Cosgel entitled The Economics of Ottoman Justice, Ergene argues for employing the quantitative methods of “law and economics” scholars, demonstrating that entrenched power holders in early modern Ottoman society were always able to use the Ottoman court system to produce outcomes favorable to themselves.

Ottoman History Podcast Episode 148: Beyond Heterodoxy: Kizilbash/Alevis in Ottoman Anatolia
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Ottoman History Podcast Episode 148: Beyond Heterodoxy: Kizilbash/Alevis in Ottoman Anatolia
Writer: Ayfer Karakaya-Stump
Writer: Chris Gratien
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: The history of Anatolia's Alevi or Kizilbash community has long been written by outsiders who have variously portrayed them as mysterious, heretical, heterodox, or uncivilized. Alevism has been often juxtaposed with the high religion would-be orthodox Sunni practice. This historical understanding of Alevis has continued to influence the way these communities are represented in the present. In this episode, Ayfer Karakaya-Stump challenges this binary. Drawing on previously unexamined sources produced by the Ottoman Alevi community itself, she seeks a new road to understanding Alevism and the relationship of Alevi communities with the Ottoman and Safavid states, Sufi movements of the time, and the communities that surrounded them.

Ottoman History Podcast Episode 252: Tracing Plague in the Ottoman Empire
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Ottoman History Podcast Episode 252: Tracing Plague in the Ottoman Empire
Writer: Nukhet Varlik
Director: Nir Shafir
Producer: Ottoman History Podcast
Abstract: Geneticists and historians are generally considered strange bedfellows. However, new advances in bio-archaeology and genetics are facilitating this odd coupling. In this episode, we speak to Nükhet Varlik, author of Plague and Empire in the Early Modern Mediterranean World: the Ottoman experience, 1347-1600 (Cambridge University Press), about how genetic evidence has transformed the study of the plague in the past ten years, allowing geneticists to more readily identify the presence of Yersinia pestis bacteria in human remains. Whereas before historians had been hesitant to diagnose diseases posthumously, they can now speak with greater certainty about the presence of plague. We then discuss the life of plague in the early modern Ottoman Empire in particular, focusing on the creation of ‘plague capitals’ in the urban centers of the Ottoman Empire following the conquest of Constantinople and how integrating the Ottoman experience of plague changes the story of how historians of medicine approach the topic. To inspire future collaborations among our listeners, we end with a peek at the process of working with geneticists and what such approaches can contribute to the study of the history of the Middle East.

Title: Ottoman History Podcast 333: Piracy and Law in the Ottoman Mediterranean
Writer: Joshua White
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Pirates are usually imagined as outlaws. But as the history of the early modern Mediterranean demonstrates, the line between illegal raiding and legitimate maritime violence was blurry, easily crossed, and often a moving target. In this episode, we talk to Joshua White about his book Piracy and Law in the Ottoman Mediterranean. We consider how piracy shaped legal institutions and thought in the Ottoman world, and we get a glimpse of the fascinating and liminal world of pirates, jurists, and officials in the Ottoman Mediterranean.

Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times
Grant details: RA-50082-10
Title: Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times
Writer: Lenore Skenazy
Writer: Jon Grinspan
Director: Marty Moss-Coane
Producer: WHYY
Abstract: Childhood today is often carefully choreographed. Structure, safety and control are just some of the hallmarks of modern American parenting. The focus is on reining in children, rather than letting them run amok. But kids in the 19th century were a very different breed, according to historian Jon Grinspan. Assertive, rebellious and freewheeling, these young scamps roamed free in gangs, getting into fights, building bonfires and attacking small animals. We compare childhood then and now, with Jon Grinspan, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society and Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids: How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry).

Abstract: For much of the 20th Century, African Americans in the South were barred from the voting booth, sent to the back of the bus, and walled off from many of the rights they deserved as American citizens. Until well into the 1960s, segregation was legal. The system was called Jim Crow. In this documentary, Americans—black and white—remember life in the Jim Crow times.

Gershwin / Anima Eterna Brugge
Grant details: RQ-249784-16
Title: Gershwin / Anima Eterna Brugge
Director: Jos van Immerseel
Producer: Alpha Classics
Producer: Outhere Music France
Producer: Anima Eterna Brugge
Abstract: George Gershwin composed his Rhapsody in Blue in 1924. In the same year, he launched his collaboration with his brother Ira, which produced countless songs. He never achieved his ambition of studying with Maurice Ravel, but was always enthralled by the symphonic poem and the concerto. His masterpieces, such as An American in Paris and the opera Porgy and Bess, greatly enriched the American musical heritage. Jos van Immerseel has always been fascinated by Gershwin, but it was the appearance of a new edition of the scores that prompted the pianist and conductor to record this extensive homage. Thanks to the very latest research undertaken by the University of Michigan, the Library of Congress and the Gershwin Estate, he and his companions in Anima Eterna have got closer than ever before to the composer’s intentions, making use of the appropriate instruments. This CD includes the international premiere recording of the Gershwin Critical Edition's Rhapsody in Blue (1924 Jazz) and An American in Paris.

Grant details: RZ-50071-03
Title: Das Gänsebuch (The Geese Book): German Medieval Chant
Director: Corine Schleif
Producer: Volker Schier
Abstract: Chants characteristic for the medieval liturgy of St. Lorenz in Nuremberg, Germany, were recorded for the first time by the Schola Hungarica, a leading ensemble for the performance of medieval chant. One of the highlights of the repertoire, also a world premier recording, is the mass formula for the feast of the Holy Lance, the most important festival celebrated annually in the city of Nuremberg between 1424 and 1524. Portions of this performance were used in a television documentary about the Holy Lance aired on Channel 2 of the BBC and on the Discovery Channel. Other chants recorded were taken from the formulas of saints venerated locally, for example, Saint Sebaldus, Saint Deocarus, Saint Martha, Saint Monica and Saint Lawrence. The recordings was produced in collaboration with Bavarian Radio, Studio Franconia and it is marketed by HNH International (Naxos).

Title: Mexico ’68 and the Tlatelolco Massacre (Podcast)
Writer: Joe Richman
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Joe Richman
Abstract: In 1968, Mexico City was preparing to host the Olympics. It was the first time that a Latin American country would host the Games, and the government was hoping to show off the new, modern, Mexico. At the same time, student protests were regularly sweeping through the streets of Mexico City. And just 10 days before the Olympics were to begin, on October 2, the Mexican army fired on a peaceful student demonstration in the Tlatelolco neighborhood. The official announcement was that four students were dead, but eyewitnesses said they saw hundred of dead bodies being trucked away. The Tlatelolco Massacre is one of the darkest episodes in Mexican history. Over the years, the death toll isn’t the only thing the government has covered up.

The Dropped Wrench (Podcast)
Grant details: TR-235124-16
Title: The Dropped Wrench (Podcast)
Writer: Joe Richman
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Joe Richman
Abstract: On September 18, 1980, two Air Force mechanics entered the Titan II missile silo in Damascus, Arkansas. While conduct routine maintenance, they dropped a wrench. The wrench set off an explosion which killed one airman, destroyed the entire base, and sent the warhead flying 700 yards where it landed in a ditch. It was an accident that – had the warhead gone off – could have taken out half the state of Arkansas. This is a story of an accident, but it’s also a story about the dangers we still live with today, and how hard it is to really comprehend risk and probability when the consequences are almost unimaginable.

Title: Contenders: Say it Like You Mean it
Writer: Sarah Kramer
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kramer
Abstract: Throughout American history, one of the most important job qualifications for the office of President has been knowing how to talk. You have to be able to deliver a speech that will rally the people. For Lincoln it was: “Four score and seven years ago,” FDR had: “A date which will live in infamy.” JFK asked, “Ask not what your country can do for you…” You get the idea. But one of the most influential speeches in American political history is one most people have never even heard of: William Jennings Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” speech. In this episode, we bring you the story of Bryan’s epic speech, plus the story of the presidential campaign of 1952 when a fondness for oratory doomed the candidacy of Adlai Stevenson.

Title: Prisoners of War
Writer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Producer: Nellie Gilles
Abstract: During the war in Vietnam, there was a notorious American military prison on the outskirts of Saigon called Long Binh Jail. But LBJ wasn’t for captured enemy fighters, it was for American soldiers. These were men who had broken military law. And there were a lot of them. As the unpopular war dragged on, discipline frayed and soldiers started to rebel. By the summer of 1968, over half the men in Long Binh Jail were locked up on AWOL charges. Some were there for more serious crimes, others for small stuff, like refusing to get a haircut. The stockade had become extremely overcrowded. Originally built to house 400 inmates, it became crammed with over 700 men, more than half African American. On August 29th, 1968, the situation erupted. This story aired on the 50th anniversary of the Long Binh Jail uprising.

Abstract: On August 6, 1945 the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. It was the first time a nuclear weapon had been used in warfare. There were three strike planes that flew over Hiroshima that day: the Enola Gay which carried the bomb, and two observation planes, the Great Artiste and the Necessary Evil. But most of the 34 crew-members didn’t know that they were carrying the most powerful weapon in the world. Russell Gackenbach was a second lieutenant and a navigator on the Necessary Evil. Today, he is the only surviving member of the mission. This story aired as part of our Last Witness series.

Abstract: On June 15, 1904, a steamship called the General Slocum left the pier on East Third Street in New York City just after 9 AM. The boat was filled with more than 1,300 residents of the Lower East Side. Many of the passengers were recent German immigrants who were headed up the east river for a church outing, a boat cruise and picnic on Long Island. But they would never make it. We interviewed the last living survivor of the General Slocum, Adella Wotherspoon, when she was 100 years old. Today we’re bringing you her story as part of our series, Last Witness. Plus, a portrait of the last civilian lighthouse keeper in the U.S.

Abstract: A record-breaking number of women ran for Congress in the midterm elections this November. There are 257, dwarfing all previous years. And in 2020, we’ll likely see a record number of women running for President as well. It's a historic moment for women in politics. But what many people don’t know is that - over the years - there have actually been more than 35 women who have run for President. Today on the show we have three stories of women who launched bids to be President of the United States: Victoria Woodhull, Margaret Chase Smith, and Shirley Chisholm.

Abstract: On February 20, 1939, the marquee of Madison Square Garden was lit up with the evening’s main event: a “Pro-American Rally.” The organizers had chosen the date in celebration of George Washington’s birthday. 20,000 men and women streamed inside and took their seats. The view they had was stunning: a 30-foot-tall banner of Washington hung between American flags and two huge swastikas. It was the eve of World War II. The rally was sponsored by the German American Bund, one of several American organizations that openly supported Fascism and Hitler. Eighty years later, we tell the story of the rally at The Garden.

Soul Sister: The Limits of Empathy
Grant details: TR-259360-18
Title: Soul Sister: The Limits of Empathy
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Abstract: In 1969, Grace Halsell, a white journalist, published a book called Soul Sister. It was her account of living as a “black woman” in the United States. Lyndon Johnson provided a blurb for the book, and it sold over a million copies. Halsell was inspired by John Howard Griffin’s Black Like Me, which came out in 1961. That was inspired by an even earlier book in the 1940’s. On the podcast, we tell the story of Grace Halsell and explore the ongoing debate of "journalistic blackface" and the limits of empathy. Guests include historians Robin Kelley and Alisha Gaines, who fall on opposite sides of the empathy debate.

Grant details: TR-50008-08
Title: The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series
Writer: Sara Fishko
Producer: Sara Fishko
Abstract: From 1957 to 1965, the master photographer W. Eugene Smith had a studio and darkroom in a dilapidated building on 6th Avenue north of 28thstreet in Manhattan. The Jazz Loft, as it became known, had already become a favored spot for jam sessions by hundreds of jazz players of the day. During his years there, Smith became obsessed with the goings-on in the building, musical and otherwise, and he taped and photographed them with an unimaginable thoroughness, capturing thousands of hours of sound as well as tens of thousands of images. The sounds and stories that emerged from those years are the basis for The Jazz Loft Project, a ten-part radio series.

Title: Young and Restless: Youth Identity in the Arab World
Producer: Aaron Lobel
Abstract: Growing up is hard to do, and for young Arabs, it can be a nightmare. The region’s bulging youth population is facing a bleak economic future. Plus, they live in a seething cauldron of tribal, national, religious, social, and political forces that simultaneously pull east and west. It was Paul Gauguin who asked, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Those are some of the very questions young Arabs are asking themselves, and the answers have implications far beyond the region.

Title: Overlooked and Underpaid: Arab Youth in Today's Economy
Producer: Aaron Lobel
Abstract: Sitting in limbo is where many young Arabs find themselves today. Nearly a quarter of Arabs under 30 are jobless. Long gone are the days of a guaranteed government gig, and the private sector is far from filling the gap. Today, Arab youth are searching for work and waiting for weddings. Some just want to leave the region – and its long unemployment lines – altogether. At best, unemployment and flagging Arab economies lead to a generation of bored and frustrated youth. At worst, economic conditions create a breeding ground for extremism and instability.

Abstract: A generation ago, young Arabs went to the streets to protest repressive governments. Now, they hop on the information highway – blogging and tweeting their discontent. They upload music, download protests. But this generation is up against rulers who know a thing or two about staying in power – and they are keeping the kids in check. It's an old battle on new ground – young activists fight to express themselves as Arab governments find better ways to outflank them.
