Cultural Encounters in the Arab World: On Media, the Modern and the Everyday

by Tarik Sabry

$0.00

In this groundbreaking book, Tarik Sabry seeks out the terrain for best understanding the experience of being modern in transitional societies. He adopts a dynamic, ethnographically-based approach to the meanings of ‘modernness’ in the Arab context and, within a relational framework, focuses on structures of thought, everydayness and self-referentiality to explore the process of building a bridge that rejoins the ‘modern’ in Arab thought with the ‘modern’ in Arab lived experience. In bringing together modernity as a philosophical category with the bridging spaces of Arab everyday life, Sabry offers fresh methods of comprehending the question of what it means to be modern in the Arab world today.
