New Journal Issue on Arab Popular Culture

New Journal Issue on Arab Popular Culture

April 27, 2012
The Journal for Cultural Research has just published a special issue on Arab popular culture which, needless to say, has several articles focusing on Egypt the hub of Arab popular culture.
I’m especially excited to see an article by my former graduate student, Dalia Said Mostafa.
The table of contents is as follows, with abstracts included for the articles about Egypt:
