Islam and media
: At Jay Rosen’s suggestion, I’ve dropped into a session at NYU on Islam and media. I’ll blog if possible.
: Peter Chelkowski, author of “Everyplace is Karbala,” is showing revolutionary Iranian art and he says: “The power of words and images has successfully challenged the military might of an established regime.”
Isn’t that irony as sweet as a pastry: The mullahs overthrew the shah with the power of words and images on paper.
Now Hoder and the popular weblog movement are standing up to the mullahs with the power of words and images on wires.
