We are excited to announce the third issue of the new JadMag (Jadaliyya in Print). In just one year since its launch, we are attracting more authors and building momentum towards significantly increasing its exclusive content.
In a groundbreaking article, anthropologist Julia Elyachar poses important provocations for political economy of the Middle East. In it she traces the relationship between khans, funduqs, and caravanserai in the Levant and factories on the Malabar Coast to the rise of “the factory” in England in the sixteenth century. By “establishing a new historical geography of the factory,” Elyachar pushes us to rethink the factory and the violence of accumulation of past and present.
This issue also features a special bundle on the uprisings in Algeria and Sudan, providing incisive analysis of the movements and connecting them to other movements for change in North Africa. In the bundle’s centerpiece article, Thomas Serres illustrates how the current political economy of Algeria must be understood within a political framework that emerged in the wake of independence.
Finally, the issue includes a diverse array of articles, interviews, reviews, and archival pieces on topics ranging from electricity in Lebanon, climate change in Egypt, and Hashemite rule in Jordan to the role of law in the Palestinian struggle for freedom and nineteenth-century emigration from the Levant.
