Hello. Merhaba. Ahlan wa sahlan.

Welcome to De-Orient. My name is Spencer Cook, an aspiring anthropologist with an interest in media, cybercultures, transnational cultural flows, subjectivity and empire, with a regional focus on the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. This blog documents my efforts to constantly de-orient and reorient myself, challenging my understanding of these phenomena as I journey though the relevant ethnographic literature.

Please follow for monthly posts on all things anthropology, media, and global goings-on.
