New Book: Wired Citizenship: Youth Learning and Activism in the Middle East

The book examines the evolving patterns of youth learning and activism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

As a result, state-society relationships have shifted—never more clearly than in the MENA region, where recent uprisings were spurred by the mobilization of tech-savvy and politicized youth.

New Book: Rebel Music: Race, Empire, and the New Muslim Youth Culture

The book analyses the connection between music and political activism among Muslim youth around the world and looks at how hip-hop, jazz, and reggae, along with Andalusian and Gnawa music, have become a means of building community and expressing protest in the face of the West’s policies in the War on Terror. Hisham Aidi interviews musicians and activists, and reports from music festivals and concerts in the United States, Europe, North Africa, and South America, to give us an up-close sense of the identities and art forms of urban Muslim youth.
