MS 098 PZ -Media of the Middle East


Institution: Pitzer

Description: What can we learn about the Middle East by examining media? What can we learn about media by studying institutions of production and practices of consumption alongside media texts themselves? In this course, we will study the media from the Middle East: Iran, Turkey, and the Arab world from Iraq to Egypt including Palestine/Israel. We will study primarily traditional media such as film, television, and music that have played a role in consolidating, contesting, and complicating colonial and postcolonial states and patriarchal norms as well as new media such as satellite and internetbased platforms that have been central to the Arab Revolts and other recent political movements.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
