Abstract:How do African cultures transform when they appropriate new media? The articles in this section interrogate basic questions related to the transformations that African societies currently go through when they are faced with new media. The findings presented are the outcome of an international research network that allowed African and European scholars to cooperate and to share their experiences with new media in field settings. Articles included: Controversies and restrictions of visual representation of prophets in northern Nigerian popular culture (Abdalla Uba Adamu); Intermediality of images: a semiotic analysis of the 'Occupy Nigeria Protest' images on social media (Nura Ibrahim); Silences and the mediation of identities in South African radio talk shows (Jendele Hungbo); The man from where? Ukhozi FM and new identities on radio in South Africa (Liz Gunner); Closeness, distance and disappearances in Cameroonian mediated transnational social ties: uses of mobile phones and narratives of transformed identities (Primus M. Tazanu, Bettina Anja Frei). Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
