DHC Invitation: "Modern Tunisian Literatures" Workshop

29.09.2022 - 30.09.2022

Please join us for this interdisciplinary English-language workshop co-hosted by the Dahlem Junior Host Hanan Natour (Freie Universität Berlin) and by Professor Mohamed-Salah Omri (University of Oxford) as an in-person event on 29–30 September 2022 with the kind support of the Dahlem Humanities Center and St. John´s College Oxford. The event aims to engage with modern Tunisian literatures in the facets of all the country’s languages and traditions – from Arabic to Francophone, from fusḥā to dārijah, from written to oral.
The original contributions by the invited speakers specialising in Tunisian literatures will explore the specificities of Tunisian literature in the modern period, i.e., its multilingualism between Arabic, French, and the Tunisian dialect, its political awareness, the fluid development of its different genres, and its different literary historical periods from the end of French colonialism to the contemporary democracy.
