Claire Cooley teaches Arabic, Persian, and Media Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research interests center on overlapping Middle East and South Asia film histories. In her dissertation and now book project, Claire traces connections between Egyptian, Iranian, and Indian cinemas with a focus on the 1930s-1960s, and uses sound as a framework to capture the dynamics of cinematic circulations across this contiguous region.
