Contemporary mobile, internet, and computing technologies currently inform culture and society around the world. In the Middle East and North Africa, as elsewhere, technology has created new media avenues for interaction while blending them with existing channels of oral, written and multi-media communication. The Journal of New Media Studies in the Middle East and North Africa was created out of a clear need to encourage research in this exciting field and promotes work done in and by researchers from the countries making up this region as well as research related to the region from anywhere in the world.
