> Aim
> 
> On the second anniversary of the “Arab Spring”, many challenges
> present themselves in transitioning countries, protests still continue
> in some countries, while new governments are being formed in others.
> Arguably, throughout these last two years, and before, Arab women
> played a critical and vital role in paving the way for the eruption of
> the “Arab Spring” movements: mobilizing their fellow citizens to take
> part in the revolts, documenting the unfolding events with their own
> cameras and cell phones, both as citizen journalists and professional
> reporters, and shaping public opinion about ongoing issues, changes,
> and challenges, through the extensive use of digital media, such as
> Twitter, Facebook, and blogs.
> 
> This is a call for papers, across disciplines, aiming for critical and
> evidence-based evaluations of the multiple roles played by Arab women
> in this changing region, both as senders and receivers of mediated
> messages, through the use of different types of media before, during,
> and beyond the Arab Spring, including both new, social media, as well
> as other media outlets, such as satellite television channels and the
> press. First-person and ethnographic accounts are welcomed, but
> CyberOrient accepts contributions from any field of study and using
> any methodological orientation.
> 
> About CyberOrient
> 
> CyberOrient (http://www.cyberorient.net/) is a peer-reviewed journal

> Prague. The aim of the journal is to provide research and theoretical
> considerations on the representation of Islam and the Middle East, the
> very areas that used to be styled as an “Orient”, in cyberspace, as
> well as the impact of the internet and new media in Muslim and Middle
> Eastern contexts.
