Conference organised by the Arab Media Centre
Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), University of Westminster

Keynote Lecture: Joseph Masaad, Columbia University, on “Sexuality and/in Islam"

Is 'subculture' a universal category that discloses itself in similar ways, regardless of differences in historical moments or cultural geographies? Or is it inextricably linked to particular historical moments and cultural specificities?

This conference will explore youth subcultures in the Arab context, relating them to specific historical, economic, cultural and political moments. Presentations will engage with theoretical and ethnographic based work dealing with, but not limited to, the following themes:

· Social media, subcultures and the politics of resistance

· Popular music/sport/cinema as subculture

· Sexuality, gender and the politics of representation

· Theorizing Arab subcultures/Rethinking Arab subcultures

· Contemporary Arab art and subcultures

· Subcultures and new forms of Arab identity
