Annemarie Iddins is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Fairfield University. Her research is primarily situated within the global media studies subfield of Communication, focusing on transnational media industries and cultural politics in the Maghreb and its diaspora. In particular, Iddins is interested in how media make room for alternative economic models, politics, and perspectives in the midst of powerful corporate and political interests. She is currently working on a book manuscript titled No Concessions: Independent Media and the Reshaping of the Moroccan Public, which aims to provide a model for analyzing media-state relations in contexts that combine strong state influence with neoliberal tendencies. The project analyzes the entrance of transnational capital into Morocco’s media landscape and the subsequent re-emergence of independent media under King Mohammed VI, whereby culture has been remediated through magazines, film and various digital media platforms and practices. In doing so it engages with questions about global capital, media infrastructure, digital cultures, and processes of public formation. Prior to Iddins’ doctoral work, she was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, studying media and cultural politics in Rabat, Morocco. She received her bachelor’s degree in Journalism and French from the University of St. Thomas (Minn.), her M.A in Mass Communication Research from the University of Minnesota, and her Ph.D. in Communication Studies from the University of Michigan.
