feel free to get in touch to share and celebrate. if you can send pictures from the 90s (or before), they will be featured for sure. other pictures are welcome too, so long as they're in some good taste--ok to be a bit nuts though.
you may upload two files at a time here, or email me if you want to share a folder via dropbox or google.
let's celebrate what we love together. and certainly don't try to be too cool. participate god damn it!
\\\\ Bassam has been a professional DJ for 32 years when he started his first Night Club residency. His DJ career took off meteorically when he landed a rather unprecedented Thursday and Saturday two-night residency at the Legendary Fifth Colvmn night club in 1992-1995, when the club transitioned to The Bank. The rest, up to the current day, can be found here. To commemorate the golden age of club dance music, Bassam did not delete his DJ website from 2003, www.DjBassam.com, which might need flash to work! Besides worshipping and closely following Football (the real sport you play with your feet, not your hands), Bassam is also Director of the Middle East and Islamic Studies Program and Associate Professor at the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University. He is the author of Business Networks in Syria: The Political Economy of Authoritarian Resilience (Stanford University Press, 2011) and co-editor of the forthcoming book, A Critical Political Economy of the Middle East (Stanford University Press, 2021). Bassam serves as Founding Editor of the Arab Studies Journal and the Knowledge Production Project. He is co-producer/director of the award-winning documentary film, About Baghdad, and director of the series Arabs and Terrorism. Bassam is Co-Founder/Editor of Jadaliyya Ezine and Executive Director of the Arab Studies Institute. He serves on the Board of the Arab Council for the Social Sciences and is Executive Producer of Status Audio Magazine. Bassam is Co-Project Manager for the Salon Syria Project and Director of the Middle East Studies Pedagogy Initiative (MESPI). He received MESA's Jere L. Bacharach Service Award in 1917 for his service to the profession. Currently, Bassam is working on his second Syria book tittled Understanding The Syrian Tragedy: Regime, Opposition, Outsiders (forthcoming, Stanford University Press) \\\\
