About the journal:
Arab Media & Society is the primary reference for understanding the role of media in shaping Arab societies and the broader Muslim world.
The impact of the pan-Arab satellite revolution is today felt at every level of Arab society – and in every form of media. Which is why Arab Media & Society is the next logical incarnation of its predecessor, TBS Journal, covering not just television, but all forms of media and their interaction with society-at-large, from politics and business to culture and religion, as well as the way in which Arab media change resonates in the broader Muslim world.
The style of Arab Media & Society aims to be serious, well-researched and readable, The journal is committed to combining academic peer-reviewed articles with timely well informed on-the-ground accounts of developments. This depth and range of content is what distinguishes Arab Media & Society.
In addition to tracing developments in Arab media outlets and
technologies, the journal is also concerned with the changing content of media in the Middle East. Our articles address both the producers of media content (journalists, media professionals, celebrities) and the consumers of that content (audiences), as well as considering relationships between the two.
We welcome submissions from a wide variety of contributors including media professionals and journalists, regional commentators, researchers and academics of all disciplinary
perspectives—anthropology, journalism, political science, media and film studies, history, and sociology.
