Annabelle Sreberny (born September 5, 1949) is a writer, scholar, and Professor of Global Media and Communication and Director of the Centre for Media and Film Studies at SOAS.[1] She writes on globalization, communication, and culture with specific foci on international news and Iran.[2][3]


Sreberny is a Labour Party member of the Islington North Constituency Labour Party[4] in Highbury East branch.[5] In April 2018, she was one of 40 senior academics who wrote an open letter to The Guardian condemning what they called anti-Corbyn bias in media coverage of the antisemitism debate saying it was "framed in such a way as to mystify the real sources of anti-Jewish bigotry and to weaponise it against a single political figure just ahead of important elections."[6]
