TALK: The Poetry of Arab Women in the Modern Era — a prosodical inquiry into the reasons WHY?, by Maysoon Shibi

01.02.2024 | 12:15

In modern Arabic poetry, one of the frequently used poetic meters until the seventies was al–rajaz, being popular and having the ability to connect to societal matters. This statement is based on the result of some research on the poetry of Arab men/male poets. Now, what about the poetry of Arab women/female poets at the time?


Maysoon Shibi (Tel Aviv University), Minverva Fellow at Freie Universität Berlin, discusses her current research project.

The Kalīla and Dimna research colloquium continues the series of presenting international guest speakers in alternation with Close Reading Sessions on text editing questions. Colloquium sessions are being held in a hybrid fashion, combining personal encounter with the advantages of remote access. Participants meet every Thursday from 12:15 to 1:45 pm (CET).

Colleagues, visiting scholars, and students (Arabic Studies or related disciplines) are cordially invited to participate. We especially welcome researchers based elsewhere than Freie Universität Berlin to join us for any one (or more) sessions.
