Dr Mohammedwesam Amer is a guest researcher at Leibniz-Institute for Media Research | Hans Bredow Institute

Since 2020, Dr Amer has been the dean of the Faculty of Communication and Languages at Gaza University in Palestine. He served as a Fulbright scholar and visiting researcher at Harvard University's Centre for Middle Eastern Studies throughout the 2022 academic year. Prior to this role, he served as a Marie Curie fellow and post-doctoral researcher at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom from 2017 to 2020.

Dr. Amer obtained his Ph.D. from Hamburg University in Germany, completing his doctoral studies between 2011 and 2015.

His teaching and research experiences are strongly grounded in the field of mainstream and social media communication, linguistics, and (critical) discourse studies. In his research projects and lectures, he addresses issues in culture, social/online media, religions and geo-politics in their interrelation and hyper/inter- connectivity to the Middle East region. This is done through studying social media platforms, and online media productions.

Examples of his research studies are, but not limited to
  1. the Islamic State’s social media practices in mobilizing young people online,
  2. radicals’ self-representation online,
  3. representation of social actors in international news press and
  4. Hamas’s communication strategies on social media.
