Cambridge Arab Media Project (CAMP)
The Cambridge Arab Media Project (CAMP) encourages research into the Arab media and provides media professionals and academics with an open and neutral platform for debate.
Over the past few years CAMP organised conferences and workshop on various themes relating to Arab media, with specific focus on TV broadcasting, in the UK and abroad. One major goal of these meetings has been to bring together academics and experts on the field along with practioners in the industry to explore new research agenda. Main events and conferences organised by CAMP include the following:
1. Conference on ‘Religious Broadcasting in the Middle East’, University of Cambridge, 30-31 January 2010.
2. Conference on ‘Broadcasting in ‘their’ Language: Middle Eastern and Western TV Networks and their Audiences’, University of Cambridge, 3 November 2007.
