Cultural History of Modern Syria

Kevin Martin’s project explores the reach of American “soft power” by analyzing Syrians’ exposure to and perceptions of public diplomacy, propaganda, films, advertising, and new modes of urban leisure. Drawing upon an array of Syrian and American sources, he is analyzing cold war cultural exchange in an understudied setting.
