dc.description.abstractIn Arabic restaurants, sitting rooms and cars around the world, her voice filters through the airwaves, transporting listeners to narrow alleyways, cobblestones and the Mediterranean Sea, to a time of innocence and peace, determination and war, stability and acceptance. Her songs, melancholy memory and patriotic love shape Arab heritage and offer a focal point for identity construction. For many Arabs in the diaspora, Fairouzs music is a tool of expression, a proxy for nostalgia and a call for resistance. Through a theoretical framework that combines affect, the mnemonic imagination and migration, I highlight the preliminary findings of my PhD research. This research involves a series of interviews with members of the Arab diaspora living in Doha, Qatar. I examine the role Fairouzs music played in the lives of these interview subjects.en_US
