Back to Square One? The future of Post-revolution Media in North Africa

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since 2011, the Arab Spring revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya have led to pivotal shifts, twists and turns and cyclical narratives in the evolution of their media landscapes. The story of how media in these countries adapted from dictatorship to democracy, and how Western news outlets covered the region will be the focus of this panel. Social media, news innovation, public sector media reform, framing analyses and future challenges will be discussed.
Moderator: Douglas A. Boyd, University of Kentucky
Panelists: Dina Ibrahim, San Francisco State University; 25TV: News Innovation in Post-Revolution Egypt
Rasha Abdulla, American University in Cairo; Egyptian State Media: Could It Pay Its 'Public' Dues?
Hussein Amin, American University in Cairo; Media Transition in North Africa After the Arab Spring
Naila Hamdy, The American University in Cairo, Egypt; Representation of Egypt: A framing analysis of the coverage of the June 30 mass protests and beyond in US & UK elite newspapers.
