American photojournalist Joel Carillet will present his first-hand account of the
Arab Spring in Egypt as he saw it through his perceptive eyes and camera lens. Two
opportunities are available to attend Carillet's lecture - Wednesday, March 7, and
Thursday, March 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in Kline Hall room 121 on the King
College campus in Bristol, Tenn.
Prepare for some powerful images and amazing stories from one of recent history's
most monumental events, said Dr. Joseph Fitsanakis, instructor and coordinator of
the Security and Intelligence Studies program at King College.
In January of 2011, as the Arab Spring revolution was erupting in Egypt, most Westerners
were leaving the country. American photojournalist Joel Carillet did exactly the opposite.
He purchased an airline ticket to Cairo and flew there in an empty plane, sitting
alongside ABC News correspondent Katie Couric and news anchor David Muir.
Over the next six weeks, Joel witnessed the Arab Spring first hand, taking thousands
of pictures, some of which are included in the book Messages from Tahrir: Signs from
Egypt's Revolution. He also wrote about his experience in an article for the magazine
of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. The article, entitled, Rocks,
Fear, and a Giant Roar in the Land of the Pyramids, can be viewed at bit.ly/w5ev1A.
Joel Carillet's lectures are hosted by the King College Security and Intelligence
Studies Group (KSI). Co-sponsoring the event are King's Photography program and the
Performing and Visual Arts Department. For more information, contact Dr. Joseph Fitsanakis
