Shisha bars, gangsta rap and martial arts. FAU EZIRE member Dr. Hatem Elliesie and his team are researching certain milieus and scenes that are thought to be associated with extended Arab families. It is important to him and his team to examine the respective scenes on the ground, regardless of clichés and stereotypes. Such exciting research topics are one of the characteristics of the FAU research landscape. Hatem Elliesie's work is supported by FAUNext, where researchers at FAU receive targeted support on their career path.
