ARB 325 - Contemporary Syrian Television Drama


In this course, we will examine contemporary Syrian television drama dealing with gender constructions, marriage metaphors, notions of honor and shame, and social discourse. We will study different trends in Syrian drama such as old Damascene tales, which seek a return to the past. We will also study progressive trends.  A large portion of this course will focus on reading newspaper and magazine articles written by critics in response to these serials.
