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.
We are currently accepting papers, in English, French, or Arabic, on a wide range of topics addressing intersections between technology, language, and culture and society. We also accept review articles. Papers should range from 7,000-10,000 words. Reviews should be no more than 800 words. Contributions may be from any discipline and theoretical orientation.
