Middle East Media and Screen Cultures
This course introduces key concepts in the study of film and media from the Middle East, and examines the cultural and political contexts that have given shape to a range of historical and contemporary voices. Rather than a comprehensive survey of the varied cultural forms from the region, the course will highlight key issues and critical debates that open onto that wider field. Our course will focus on cinema as an object of study, and tends towards the Arab region. This class does not assume or require prior knowledge of film and media studies or Middle East studies.
