Mass Mediations
Walter Armbrust
University of California Press

This chapter considers an instance of transnational media flow that is nonhierarchical but rather horizontal between two nonmetropolitan nations, from Israel to Egypt, and studies the impact of Sa'ida Sultan, a transsexual singer who became popular through underground cassette tapes. It also discusses a transnational phenomenon through national categories, and shows that Sultan serves to mark important borders between and within the two societies.

Keywords:   transnational media flow, Israeli-Egyptian border, Sa'ida Sultan, transsexual singer, underground cassette tapes
