The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

QueerMaghreb Conference

How does “queer” function in the Maghreb? Can “queer” function in the Maghreb?

About this event

How does “queer” function in the Maghreb? Can “queer” function in the Maghreb? Focusing on Algeria and Morocco, the intention of this event is to bring together researchers, academics, artists and activists to see if/how queer theory is able to transcend the focus on sexuality and gender through general analytical principles, and lend itself to interrogating a wide range of phenomena.

Some of the questions we would like the conference to raise:

  • How are today’s sexual politics expressed through the arts in Algeria and Morocco?
  • How does activism address issues related to phallocentricity or misogyny in queer Algeria and Morocco?
  • What are the strategies used by queer activism today in Algeria and Morocco?
  • How do Algerian and Moroccan queer activists generate a space?
