On Palestinian Literature: Past, present and future

Tuesday, April 9 | 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Kuehner Court

A talk on art, scholarship, and community

As Palestinians continue to contend with the Israeli military’s destruction of hospitals, libraries, universities, and archives, writers around the world are noting the global implications of their struggle.

Poet Fady Joudah writes, “When will you begin to truly listen to what Palestinians have been saying for decades?”

In these circumstances, the long and complex tradition of Palestinian literature reminds us that acts of literary imagination are inseparable from the politics of land. In the first event of Beyond Discipline, scholars Eman Ghanayem and Layla Azmi Goushey will discuss the richness of the Palestinian literary tradition. They will be joined in conversation by Safa Khatib, doctoral candidate in the Comparative Literature Track for International Writers.

Please RSVP by email (safa@wustl.edu)

Beyond Discipline is a talk series in which scholars, artists, and writers convene to discuss the relationships between their work and urgent public issues.

This event is sponsored by the Center for the Humanities, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, and the Department of Comparative Literature
