About Us

Arab Media & Society is a primary resource for media research in the region. The journal, published biannually online and in print, offers peer-reviewed scholarly research and analysis on a wide array of topics pertaining to the dynamic media landscape across the Arab world. For more information, please see our publishing policy.

The Arab Media & Society website produces and curates diverse content examining media and life in the Arab region and diaspora. This includes reporting, analysis, interviews, reviews of books, conferences, and films, a podcast, and more.

Our online publication has a rich history of quality contributions to the field of media research and analysis. Founded in the 1998 as Transnational Broadcasting Studies, the change to Arab Media & Society in 2007 came as a response to the quickly evolving media space. The journal has operated as a hybrid publication; offering detailed academic analysis, long-form journalism and multimedia content, including our podcast.

Arab Media & Society is published by the Adham Center for Television and Digital Journalism in the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo.
