Between strategic nostalgia and banal nomadism: Arab diaspora watching satellite and digital television across Europe

Description

Myria Georgiou talks about uses of transnational television among Arab speaking populations in Europe to explore questions around citizenship. As migration to the UK has increased in number over the past decade or more, it has become a highly salient, heavily contested political issue as well.

All too often, however, the scholars writing it have focused their attention almost exclusively on the Christian experience, with only passing reference to other traditions of both science and faith. At a time when religious ignorance and misunderstanding have lethal consequences, such provincialism must be avoided and, in this pioneering effort to explore the historical relations of what we now call 'science' and 'religion', this seminar looks beyond the Abrahami Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
