Egyptian Fictions of the Digital Age
As the Tahrir Square uprisings of 2011 grew, the US narrative about the Arab world changed quickly, moving from old fashioned Orientalism to embrace a young revolution (Arab Spring) and a focus on new media and social networking software. This chapter takes an extended look at how cultural forms associated with the US—cyberpunk fiction, superhero comics, social networking software, and text messaging language—make their way into the Egyptian cultural scene, and are imbibed with rich new sets of meanings.
