JADMAG Issue 6.4: Fall 2018

- +



Want more JadMag in your library? Save by joining our JadMag subscription service here! Each JadMag subscription contains a unique Fall, Spring, and Pedagogy JadMag, in addition to a back issue JadMag of your choice.

This issue coincides with the eighth anniversary of Jadaliyya, and ushers in a new era and concept for JadMag, one that was always part of its raison d’etre. Starting this fall, it will be published as a subscription-based magazine in both hard-copy and electronically. The cultivation of a steady readership will enable the JadMag team to produce a wide-ranging and an even more intellectually stimulating publication.

These magazines will be released twice a year, in addition to a third issue that will be specifically geared toward pedagogy on issues pertaining to the Middle East and North Africa. A fourth issue will be included in all subscriptions, and it can be any of our already published theme issues on JadMag.org. Starting in 2019, each JadMag will feature diverse content and offer unique articles or interviews that will not be found on Jadaliyya at the time of publication. Coupling timely content with the addition of essential readings lists, reviews of new books and scholarly articles, and topical pieces from Jadaliyya’s celebrated archives allows the JadMag project more ambitiously to function as a knowledge producer, a near-comprehensive source of analysis on the region, and a pedagogical resource par excellence.
