Abstract

This research is based on a nine month ethnographic study involving a large scale media consumption survey, participant/non participant observation and focus groups. By discussing cosmopolitanism as a form of internal heterogeneity, this research is reworking the prevalent idea that cosmopolitanism is an activity of the upper social classes by arguing that it is lower middle class Egyptian youth who are more deserving of the cosmopolitan label.
