This conference brings together eminent literary scholars and critics to consider the relevance of postcolonial theory to modern Arabic literature, the translation of Euro-American theory into Arabic, the shortcomings of such theory that attention to modern Arabic literature reveals, the ways in which contemporary Arabic criticism can dialog with Euro-American literary theory, and the limits and opportunities of the postcolonial paradigm as a gateway into “world literature” as a network of circulation and reading.
