صورة العرب في السينما والصحافة الغربية
In Arabic and English
-
This talk will explore the evolution of depictions of Arabs in Western media from the early 20th century to the present day. Contrary to popular belief, the perception of Arabs and Islam in the Western world has not always been as contentious as it is today. The deterioration of this image is rather recent and dates back to the last quarter of the 20th century. This event will explore these stereotypes, ranging from the romantic Bedouin to the cruel fanatic, as well as the progressive re-humanization of these representations that begin after the advent of the "Arab Spring."
تأثير الجائحة على الصحة النفسية
In English, with Arabic Interpretation
-
This talk will address the broader mental health issues in various communities and how the pandemic has exacerbated the mental health crisis. During the pandemic, many countries have established mental health divisions to support and cater to the needs of people. The Ministry of Public Health and Hamad Hospital set up Mental Health Infrastructure, which received nearly 36,000 calls and plans to expand further. The case is worse in conflict-ridden countries, where children and young adults were severely affected. We will also discuss the broader implications of the pandemic and post-pandemic world on mental health and how we need to address this growing crisis.
