Arabic Glitch
Technoculture, Data Bodies, and Archives

From 2001 to 2021, various friction points among activism, media, and state securitized agencies have instrumentally transformed policies and histories of cultures, states, and people globally. This book manuscript formulates a media theory that addresses the twenty-first-century Arab condition undergoing structural, revolutionary change around the concept of the glitch as it relates to technoculture in contemporary Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Palestine, and other Arabic-speaking countries. Arabic Glitch: Technoculture, Data Bodies, and Archives interrogates new modes of knowledge production in the age of social media, digital activism, popular uprisings, state surveillance, non-fungible tokens, and algorithmic culture.
