Commitment and Beyond in Modern Arabic Literature

Thursday, Feb 13 5:00p
Joukowsky Forum Providence, RI

The lecture will be dealing with the problematic question of literary commitment, and how the idea of Iltizam both in its Marxist and existentialist instances was part of a national discourse dominated by a populist project led by the armies. Beyond Commitment can be read not only as an outcome of the defeat of 1967, but also as part of the question of democracy and freedom that will open the Arab World on the unknown answers of the questions of revolutions that are unfolding.
