Arab subcultures : Transformations in theory and practice, Hardback Book

Arab subcultures : Transformations in theory and practice Hardback

Part of the Library of Modern Middle East Studies series

Description

What is 'Arab' about Arab subcultures? This is the first book to set out to delineate different ways of studying and theorising Arab subcultural groups and practices, including film, graffiti, music, live art performances, Arab techies and youth cultures.

Contributors tackle a number of questions including: How is the study of Arab subcultures to be theorised?

How are we to analyse such creative processes in a new worldliness characterised by trans-temporality and trans-subjectivity?

Arab Subcultures effectively opens up a critical and interdisciplinary dialogue about Arab subcultures with different fields of enquiry, including anthropology, philosophy, art criticism and cultural studies, at the heart of which lies the key intellectual task of re-imagining the uneasy relation between aesthetics and politics in the age of revolutions.
