Title: Egypt is mother of the world : transnational television and national identity
Author: Elseewi, Tarik Ahmed
Abstract: This dissertation is about the production of national identity in the transnational age . Focusing on the specific example of Egyptian television , this dissertation argues that new production imperatives , mainly in satellite television and internet , have changed the way that television is produced in the Arabic speaking Middle East , most significantly away from direct state control . The changes in production accompany changes in distribution and consumption of electronic media and are significantly rewriting the ways that shared cultural identities in the Middle East , including nationalism , religious , and other significant identities , are produced , consumed and replicated . This dissertation approaches these topics by relating two specific televisual texts , the Ramadan serials Malek Farouq and Gamal Abdel Nasser , to larger changes in Arab and Egyptian television production .
