Digital Media and the Politics of Transformation in the Arab World and Asia.
Carola Richter; Anna Antonakis; Cilja Harders (ed.) – 2018
In times of increasing mediatization and digitalization media play an important role in political and societal transformation processes. The authors of this volume take an actor-centered perspective to shed light on current cases in Arab and Asian countries. They inquire into the ways processes of networking and mobilization evolve in the context of restricted media systems and state-dominated public spheres. It features original research about various social and political actors such as women’s rights activists, public intellectuals, anarchists and Islamists.
