Arab Hospitality

Russell Belk, York University, Canada

We examine contemporary Arab Hospitality in Qatar and UAE at three levels: 1) home hospitality, 2) commercial hospitality, and 3) hospitality toward the foreigners who are the majority of the populations in both countries. We find that divergences in these practices unify some and alienate others within Arab Gulf cultures. Link: vimeo.com/41228319 Password: ACR 2012
