Christa Salamandra wrote on the Caucus: Middle East wall: CFP on Iranian TV Contributions on Iranian fictional television sought for a special issue of the journal Middle East Critique, "Politics in and of Middle Eastern Television." Proposals of 250 words and a short biography should be sent by Nov. 1, 2017 tonhalabi@asc.upenn.edu andchrista.salamandra@lehman.cuny.edu. The deadline for completed articles is December 10, 2017. Issue abstract Since the outbreak of the “Arab Spring,” and the succession of social movements and protests that has followed it since 2011, there has been a burgeoning of academic interest in the politics of Middle Eastern media. In light of frequent reference to oppositional movements as “Twitter Revolutions” or “Facebook Revolutions,” the current understanding of the role that media has played before and during the Arab Spring largely draws on analyses of new media and social media. As such, Youtube videos, citizen journalists online, bloggers among other new media cultural producers dominate scholarly analyses. In this special issue, we suggest contextualizing the current moment by revisiting the importance of multiple media platforms for public discussion of social and political issues in the Middle East. We explores crucial role television plays in post-literate Middle Eastern public spheres. The collection draws scholars from multiple fields including films studies, communication, anthropology, and political science to provide a collection of diverse case studies from across the Middle East.
