Middle East Media Educator
Published by: University of Wollongong in Dubai
August 2011 Volume I, No. 1
"Middle East Media Educator (MEME) is a refereed journal published annually at the University of Wollongong in Dubai. It was inspired by and takes as its model Asia Pacific Media Educator (APME) which has been published at the University of Wollongong in Australia since 1996, founded and still edited by Eric Loo. Like APME, MEME "aims to bridge the gap between media educators and practitioners."
MEME is the first such journal in the Middle East, and it will strive to encourage dialogue between industry and academe in a region where informed analysis of the media isn't widespread. Educators struggle to find textbooks and case studies that are relevant to the unique situation in the Middle East region because most teaching resources are developed in other parts of the world.
Research articles and commentaries about the state of the media, media professions, media education, and other topics relevant to the region are welcome. Until study of the media, media professions, and media contexts in the Middle East becomes far more widespread, MEME will tend to be eclectic in its editorial policy. We welcome articles for Issue 2 in August 2012 and will consider abstracts and article proposals for that issue by the end of December 2011."
