Research Overview

My research focuses on the construction of masculinism in the Syrian national thought. I aim to analyse the language and national concepts of the three Syrian thinkers, Husri, 'Aflaq and 'Arsuzi. The assessment of their work reveals a conscious misogynistic perceptions on women. Within this context, these perceptions have been practically employed in the legal framework of the Syrian Constitution(s). This fundamentalist conceptions on women have perpetuated a hierarchal formation of national identity that is significantly unravelled in culture.
