[CONFERENCE] Media in Political Transition: The Case of Tunisia
Trinity Hall at University of Cambridge on July 15 and 16, 2014
Free and open to all – Registration required by 10 July 2014 by
contacting Élise Lapaire
Dr. Roxane Farmanfarmaian is the Principal Investigator on a new research project we have launched at Cambridge University on Media in Political Transition in the MENA region. This year we are holding a small conference focusing on the case of Tunisia, with several papers drawing from fieldwork conducted by our team in situ this past year – as well as related scholarship from a wider group of academics. Please find attached the conference poster.
The Conference will focus on the multiple changes experienced by the Media as Tunisia undergoes significant political change in the post-Ben Ali period. Focusing on shifts in structural relationships, concepts of public and private, and the development of new political and social narratives, the conference likewise will engage debate on political and media transitions in the region since the uprisings of 2011.

To take part, it isn’t necessary that you should be particularly skilled in recognising faces: we’re interested in everyone’s individual abilities. All information and results will be stored and analysed anonymously. If you experience any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.
