LAU’s Institute for Media Training and Research (TIMTAR), & the Department of Communication Arts is organizing a 3-day conference about the Arab Popular Culture and the Media that will take place from April 21 to the 23rd. 40 scholars from around the world will present their papers that are tackling, among other things, new rising popular culture, religion, cinema, music, literature, gender, architecture, emigration, and the internet. The 2nd session that I will hopefully cover include a paper entitled”Islam Online Guides Husbands and Wives Toward Marital Bliss” by Mona Abdel-Fadil that will focus on how Islam Online Arabic incorporates pop culture into their threads . Another paper entitled ” Performing the Body: Haifa Wehbi in the Becoming”  that will be presented by Zeina Meskaoui will highlight on how the body images create an identity. Also among the papers presented there would be one entitled “A Psychological Profile of Sabah” by Ahmad Oueini.
