JMEWS Queering Middle Eastern Cyberscapes

SPECIAL ISSUE of Journal of Middle East Women's Studies: Queering Middle Eastern Cyberscapes 

Adi Kuntsman and Noor Al-Qasimi, Guest Editors
In this special issue of the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies, entitled “Queering Middle Eastern Cyberscapes,” guest editors Adi Kuntsman and Noor Al-Qasimi fill in the gap in current scholarship where “queer,” “digital” and “Middle East” are seldom considered together. Five full-length articles and a unique Interventions section examine, empirically and theoretically, the conjunctions between sexuality and technology, queerness and the Middle East, and transformative politics and colonial and imperial legacies.
