The Center for the Humanities

Suggested readings for "Souffles-Anfas: A Critical Anthology from the Moroccan Journal of Culture and Politics"

October 25, 2016

In looking forward to Souffles-Anfas: A Critical Anthology from the Moroccan Journal of Culture and Politics: An Introduction and Reading, we'd like to share some excerpts from the recently published anthology and reflections from its editors. On November 1st, the Center for the Humanities will present a bilingual reading in both the original Arabic and French and translated selections from the first English-language anthology of one of the most influential literary, cultural, and political reviews to emerge in postcolonial North Africa.

These readings—including two poems in the anthology by one of the journal's founders Abdellatif Laâbi, in English and the original French—are not required; however, they are intended to provide entry points into the conversation that will take place.
