Islam in Arab Media: The project proposal should have a special emphasis on how various expressions of Islam affect the Arab Media, or vice versa. Potential studies could take up production environments, e.g. specific TV channels or web portals.  It could also be centred on particular genres, media-personalities or audiences. Studies within the role of Islam in selected media on the Arabian Peninsula are particularly welcome.
