Welcome to NMIT Working Papers
Posted by meaningfulconnections on September 6, 2008
NMIT, a selection of “working” papers on new media and information technologies in the Middle East, has returned with
- new data and findings from on-going social science research on uses and impacts of information technologies in work, leisure, education, commerce, media, development, local and regional identities, globalization and transnational ties in the Middle East
- about changing access to communications, production and consumption of media, the evolving political economy of telecommunications, policy issues, and the cultural registers of information technologies in the countries of the region and the Middle Easts overseas
- sponsored by the Arab Information Project at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
The goal of NMIT Working Papers is to enhance the circulation of initial findings from specialist research, such as papers prepared for conferences and seminars but not yet finalized for publication. Views expressed are those of the authors, who welcome feedback and comment, and do not necessarily reflect those of the sponsors
