Leaks, Hacks, and Scandals - Arab Culture in the Digital Age (Paperback): Tarek El-Ariss Leaks, Hacks, and Scandals - Arab Culture in the Digital Age (Paperback)
Tarek El-Ariss
R504 R394 Discovery Miles 3 940 Save R110 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

How digital media are transforming Arab culture, literature, and politics In recent years, Arab activists have confronted authoritarian regimes both on the street and online, leaking videos and exposing atrocities, and demanding political rights. Tarek El-Ariss situates these critiques of power within a pervasive culture of scandal and leaks and shows how cultural production and political change in the contemporary Arab world are enabled by digital technology yet emerge from traditional cultural models. Focusing on a new generation of activists and authors from Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula, El-Ariss connects WikiLeaks to The Arabian Nights, Twitter to mystical revelation, cyberattacks to pre-Islamic tribal raids, and digital activism to the affective scene-making of Arab popular culture. He shifts the epistemological and historical frameworks from the postcolonial condition to the digital condition and shows how new media challenge the novel as the traditional vehicle for political consciousness and intellectual debate. Theorizing the rise of "the leaking subject" who reveals, contests, and writes through chaotic yet highly political means, El-Ariss investigates the digital consciousness, virality, and affective forms of knowledge that jolt and inform the public and that draw readers in to the unfolding fiction of scandal. Leaks, Hacks, and Scandals maps the changing landscape of Arab modernity, or Nahda, in the digital age and traces how concepts such as the nation, community, power, the intellectual, the author, and the novel are hacked and recoded through new modes of confrontation, circulation, and dissent.

The Arab Renaissance - A Bilingual Anthology of the Nahda (Paperback): Tarek El-Ariss The Arab Renaissance - A Bilingual Anthology of the Nahda (Paperback)
Tarek El-Ariss
R486 R386 Discovery Miles 3 860 Save R100 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the Nahda, or Arab Renaissance, from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century, Arab culture and politics for the first time responded to European modernity and face the challenges to Arab power, tradition, and identity posed by the industrial, colonial nations of the West. In the process, Arab society both imitated and innovated, translating contemporary foreign texts, adopting new genres, developing journalism, creating a new publishing industry, and building new educational systems as it changed under conflicting forces: nationalism, secularism, Islamic revival, and language reforms. Collected in this anthology are texts by intellectuals, writers, clergy, and political figures that deal with authority, social norms, conventions and practices both secular and religious, gender roles, class, travel, and technology. Presented in the original Arabic and in English translation, they will be of interest of students of Arabic language and culture, history, cultural studies, gender studies, and other disciplines.

Trials of Arab Modernity - Literary Affects and the New Political (Hardcover): Tarek El-Ariss Trials of Arab Modernity - Literary Affects and the New Political (Hardcover)
Tarek El-Ariss
R1,448 R1,188 Discovery Miles 11 880 Save R260 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Challenging prevalent conceptualizations of modernity--which treat it either as a Western ideology imposed by colonialism or as a universal narrative of progress and innovation--this study instead offers close readings of the simultaneous performances and contestations of modernity staged in works by authors such as Rifa'a al-Tahtawi, Ahmad Faris al-Shidyaq, Tayeb Salih, Hanan al-Shaykh, Hamdi Abu Golayyel, and Ahmad Alaidy.
In dialogue with affect theory, deconstruction, and psychoanalysis, the book reveals these trials to be a violent and ongoing confrontation with and within modernity. In pointed and witty prose, El-Ariss bridges the gap between Nahda (the so-called Arab project of Enlightenment) and postcolonial and postmodern fiction.
