Exeter Critical Gulf Series I

75,00 €

From projecting ideology and influence, to maintaining a notion of ‘Gulfness’ through the selective exclusion or inclusion of certain beliefs, cultures and people, the notion of Gulfization is increasingly pertinent as Gulf countries occupy a greater political and economic role in wider Middle East politics. This volume discusses the notion of Gulfization, and examines how thoughts, ideologies, way of life and practices are transmitted, changed, and transduced inside and outside the Gulf. From historical perspectives such as the impact of the 1952 Egyptian Revolution in Yemen, to studies on the contemporary projection of Salafism or hyper-nationalism in the Gulf monarchies, this book explores, contends, and critiques the transnational and regional currents that are making, and unmaking, the new Gulf Moment.

This volume is based on the 28th Gulf Conference held at the University of Exeter in 2016.

The Exeter Critical Gulf Series publishes the latest cutting-edge research on the six Gulf Monarchies and Yemen, as well on Iran and Iraq. Premised on a need to disrupt normative knowledge and conventional wisdom on a rapidly changing region, this series contains critical perspectives from across the social sciences and humanities. Accordingly, we welcome innovative original monographs from early career or established researchers concerning the dynamics of power and resistance, knowledge production, contestation, emancipation and justice.
