> transformations in culture, communication, and politics in the Middle East and

> Middle East within various academic disciplines and using diverse approaches,
> whether as articles or reviews of films, books (including novels), and
> exhibitions.
> MEJCC is seeking papers critically addressing (though not exclusive to) the
> following:
> - the old and new media in all their forms (the broadcast media, the print
> media, electronic media, and film), whether in or about the Middle East
> - processes of communication in geographical space in the Middle East
> (including street art, posters and architecture)
> - popular culture in the Middle East
> - the relationship between the media (including interactive communication
> technologies) and political and social processes in the region
> - the cultural practices through which power is expressed and politics is
> performed.
> MEJCC is published by Brill. The first issue of the Journal can be accessed
> free at MEJCC¹s latest issue deals with political
> communication in the Middle East; the forthcoming issue with media,
> geopolitics and public diplomacy; and the following one with Palestinian
> cultural studies.
> Contributions should be original work which has neither been simultaneously
> submitted for publication elsewhere nor published previously. Manuscripts
> should be submitted through Editorial Manager, which can be accessed via:
