Hello. Merhaba. Ahlan wa sahlan.

Welcome to De-Orient. My name is Spencer Cook, an aspiring anthropologist with an interest in media, mobility, cybercultures, political subjectivity and epistemology in the Middle East and North Africa. This blog documents my efforts to constantly de-orient and reorient my understanding of these phenomena while journeying through the ethnographic literature and providing anthropological commentary on global goings-ons.
