Announcing JadMag Issue 7.3 (Jadaliyya in Print)

In the essay “Beyond Paralyzing Terror: The ‘Dark Decade’ in the Algerian Hirak, Elizabeth Perego discusses allusions to the “archived past” of the 1990s during the mass mobilizations that began in the country in 2019 and have continued into this year. In this issue’s second center-piece essay, Ebshoy Magdy examines narratives around poverty in Egypt in relation to the country’s two cash support programs, Takaful and Karama. Additionally, this issue features a bundle of essays contextualizing the Lebanese and Iranian uprisings.

Since the autumn of 2018, Jadmag has been published as a seasonal subscription-based magazine in both hard-copy and electronic formats. 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 are being 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 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.
