Welcome to the LLC Arabic forum! Members of the forum define “Arabic,” in the broadest sense, as both a multi-ethnic language and a multilingual ethnic formation. Therefore, we are interested in works written in Arabic as well as in Arab writing in other languages. We are interested in Arabic literature from the classical to the contemporary period, and we welcome comparative approaches that encompass other languages and cultures of the Middle East as well as those of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Australia.

Although our forum is young, approved by the MLA in 2009-2010, we have grown by leaps and bounds. Every year eight to twelve panels that pertain to Arabic literature and culture are approved by the MLA.

Please feel free to post pertinent announcements, call for papers, panels updates, and your suggestions. We look forward to hearing from all members.


The Executive Committee of the LLC Arabic forum.
