Arabesques:Levant-North Africa

Arabesques: recent fiction from the Levant and North Africa (new)

THCC Mondays 1000-1200 fortnightly from 14th Jan
The first part of this course was run in previous term

Tutor: Jane Irons

‘A writer could not be part of Arab society and not concern himself with change’. (Halim Barakat). In the second part of our course we will continue to look at how contemporary writers have risen to this challenge. Beginning, as a point of contrast, with one of the landmarks of Arab fiction in the 20thc, we will then return to more recent times and more recent fiction which very much engages with some of the key issues confronting the Arab world. As before, this is primarily a discussion group, so prior reading of the texts is recommended for maximum enjoyment and engagement.
