Call for Papers
Special Issue on: ‘Minorities and New Media: Revisiting the Field’.
This special issue of the Journal of Arab and Muslim Media Research, which coincides with its tenth anniversary, aims at enriching the debate on media and minority communities around the world. In an age of unprecedented technological developments, the use of minority groups of satellite TV and social media begs further research from multidisciplinary scholarship.
Banking on the above, this special issue of JAMMR seeks to critically address this ever growing area of enquiry and revisit the field from various theoretical and empirical dimensions. It welcomes contributions based on original empirical studies regarding (and not necessarily limited to) the following themes:
- Minority communities, social media and national identity.
- Diaspora and the media, revisiting the concept/field.
- Uses and reception of minority communities of satellite TV and radio.
- Satellite TV and social media as alternative platforms for news and entertainment.
- Social media, the youth and transcultural spaces.
- Minority media, counterpublics and political activism.
- New media and hegemonic/counterhegemonic discourses.
- How minorities respond to perceived biased mainstream media outlets.
- How the growing number of minority media outlets in the west inform about the undercurrents of power struggle in modern society.
