Course Introduction

The degree draws on theoretical approaches central to the study of culture, politics and communication, as well as theoretical frameworks used in other disciplines, to critically assess the continuously changing media and cultural landscape in the Middle East and interrogate the relationship between media, cultural production and politics. Given the fluid situation in most countries of the Middle East, the degree will critically examine different aspects of these changes, explore diverse perspectives and link them to specific case studies in order to encourage new ways of thinking and understanding the region that move out of Euro'centric debates and approaches that have resulted in vague generalizations and imaginations of the region as a coherent, self'sealed and self'explanatory space.

Course Modules

Compulsory modules: communication, culture and politics in the Middle East: theoretical and analytical approaches; dissertation in media and the Middle East.

Course Additional Entry
