Syrian musalsalat in Sweden

I`m in Lund, Sweden, attending a very interesting conference on Syria and will be giving a talk this morning under the title of “An overview on Syrian drama production context: private producers, Gulf funding and the State as multiple powers re-shaping contemporary Syrian musalsalat”.

The panel will feature Christa Salamandra, the US anthropologist who first studied Syrian drama; Cecile Boex who`s working on audiovisuals and contentious politics at IFPO in Damascus; and Shayna Silverstein from the  University of Chicago on secularism and the aesthetics of debke performance. The conference is a three day event featuring also art exhibitions and oud performance, being a window on the many facets of Syrian contemporary culture. Thanks to the Centre for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University for organizing this!
