Senior Lecturer Andrew Simon contributed to a Kerning Cultures podcast that has been nominated for the Signal Awards

Earlier this year, Professor Andrew Simon contributed to a Kerning Cultures podcast on Sheikh Imam, a blind Egyptian singer who undermined the stories told by repressive regimes long before the dawn of social media. The episode, which draws on Professor Simon's new book, Media of the Masses: Cassette Culture in Modern Egypt, was recently nominated for the Signal Awards. Voting for the award closes on December 22, 2022.
