Abstract

Imagine that you are a young person stuck in London when your home city is engulfed in a revolution on the other side of the world. Your family and friends are at the heart of a dangerous event that commands the attention of the world’s media. The Internet is swamped with frantic discussion and disturbing testimony. But can you really keep in touch? How can you properly understand the truth of what is happening? This is the extraordinary account by Sara Romany, one of my students at the LSE, as she used all communications tools to try to keep in touch with events in Egypt over the last few days.
