The surprising spread of "Idol" TV

Arts as DiplomacyPosted by The Editorial Wed, March 23, 2011 08:59:10

Source: TED Conferences

Former US Ambassador Cynthia P. Schneider is a Fellow at the Brookings Institution, where she leads the Arts and Culture Initiative within the Saban Center for Middle East Policy. She is an expert in Cultural Diplomacy and in her work, she looks at the Muslim world through its cultural products (movies, films, books and shows), and searches for clues to deeper social change.

Cynthia Schneider looks at two international "American Idol"-style shows -- one in Afghanistan, and one in the United Arab Emirates -- and shows the surprising effect that these reality-TV competitions are creating in their societies.
