Abstract

Using depth interviews and observations of domestic and commercial hospitality rituals in Qatar and the UAE, we explore culturally- constructed meanings of hospitality rituals in Arab Gulf States. We examine associated performative symbolic constructions of ethnic identity, as well as complexities arising when Bedouin rituals of hospitality are urbanized and commoditized.
