Abstract

This article examines the contemporary configuration of youth cultural politics through self-expressive artifacts, probing in the process the changing mediascape in the Arab world. The article discusses the relationship between youth and media focusing on the way young people develop and circulate their own messages outside corporate, religious, and state institutions. Youth-generated media is introduced as a framework for analyzing these alternative forms of communication. The article focuses on the case of Lebanese blogger Fink Ployd whose blog, BloggingBeirut.com, exemplifies the characteristics of youth-generated media. Blurring old and new media, BloggingBeirut.com, was a platform for youth cultural politics surrounding the July 06 War.
