Abstract

In the summer of 2008, the Saudi-owned, pan-Arab satellite television network Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) aired a failed Turkish soap opera, Gümüş, as the Arabized Noor, creating an overnight sensation and a media panic. Arab news media attributed a wave of domestic violence and divorce to the series' handsome lead actor, and his character's romantic deportment. This article combines content analysis of Noor, examination of online discourses surrounding the series, and interviews with its producers. It explores women's use of new media forms-satellite television and the Internet-to articulate desire and discontent, and the media panic these expressions induced among social and religious conservatives. Opposition to Noor-and to the idolization of its male lead-invokes older notions of women's potent sexual desire as a threat to the social order, and justifies their containment and control. The series' ambiguity, like that of Turkey itself, invokes binaries of East and West, Islam and secularism, tradition and modernity enabling a range of commentary on the state of Arab society in general, and sexual relations in particular. The Noor phenomenon created a forum where conflicting notions of Middle Eastern identity, sexual agency and gender relations vie for dominance.
