Middle Eastern Media Colloquium

Middle Eastern Media(Muslim Media Project, part I)
Friday, May 18, 2007
9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, followed by reception
Location: McCormick Tribune Center Forum
Free and open to the public

This symposium charts and examines a variety of media emerging from the Muslim Middle East and North Africa. We will gather some of the most exciting scholars in the field today, scholars who work from a variety of disciplinary contexts, including anthropology, history, media studies and Middle East studies. Invited speakers will examine Middle Eastern media as they are produced and disseminated within national and regional circuits, and as they become implicated in global ones. We are interested in how many of these media stand in a corrective or adversarial relationship with the avowedly global media (CNN, Hollywood movies). Questions of form (internet, blogs, cartoons, text messaging, etc.) are of as much interest to us as content. Given the vexed relationship of the Muslim world to local and global media, there is a heightened consciousness about the politics of representation in the region. Invited speakers bring their experience in the region to bear on this timely and poorly understood field of inquiry.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike
