Summary

This book applies digital methods of analysis to the study of the impact of digital technologies on the social and political spheres of women in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. These countries have been early embracers of digital technologies in the Middle East, and are therefore useful cases to examine the region’s use of digital media. Bernardi discusses what can be called the silent revolutions of these women online. By combining Software Studies, Feminist Qur’anic Revisionism, Actor Network Theory and digital methods research and analysis, the book explores how ‘women’s issues’ in Egypt and Saudi Arabia arise, transform and manifest themselves in the digital sphere, both in English and in Arabic.
