About Media Page

Jadaliyya’s Media page provides a critical lens from which to explore and analyze the media landscape in and about the Middle East and North Africa. It spotlights new and traditional media players, platforms, and reporting at the local, regional, and global levels.

Original articles featured in this page expand the disciplinary boundaries of media studies and communication to look at the intersections of the arts and all forms of representation. Also featured in this page are Jadaliyya's regular Media Roundups from across the region. These are prepared by teams that monitor the media closely on geographic and national criteria such as the Arabian Peninsula, the Maghreb, Egypt, Syria, Turkey, and Palestine. Some roundups pertain to topical themes such as Cities as well as a dedicated reporting of Daily Acts of Resistance and Subversion (DARS). 

The Media page is a partnership with VOMENA (Voices of the Middle East and North Africa) which has consistently brought listeners deeply-informed and genuine voices that take listeners beyond the headlines into the richly diverse and fascinating world of culture and politics of the Middle East and North Africa. If you have questions or comments, please email us at: media@jadaliyya.com
