During the week when millions of people all around the world are observing Valentine's Day, we will be discussing the emergence of modern day traditions and newly invented consumer mass behavioral patterns of the past century. Are we talking about changes in the global scale or particularistic developments? Can consumption be a liberatory practice?

he age of technology we live in has transformed the traditional education system greatly and redefined roles of teacher and student. While teachers of the previous generation were authority figures who were highly respected and at times even feared; today with the easy and immediate access to knowledge and information through internet and social media channels, teacher is no longer the only source of knowledge. The interactive ground initiated by technology encourages students to think critically, actively engage with the material and shape their own learning process whereas their previous role had been the passive recipient of information.

Beteckningen "arabiska" används om en mycket komplicerad språkgrupp inom de semitiska språken. Å ena sidan betecknar "arabiska" alla arabvärldens olika modersmål, alltså de språk man ofta kallar "arabiska dialekter". Å andra sidan betyder "arabiska" också olika varianter av ett "formellt" språk, al-?arabiyya eller "klassisk arabiska", som täcker allt från Koranens språkdräkt till den så kallade moderna standardarabiskan.
