The CLCS Global Arab and Arab American forum is interested in works of the Arab diaspora, including the cultural production of Arab American and global Arab writers. The category “Global Arab” allows for a broad conceptualization of diasporic and multilingual work situated within the various national, ethnic, religious, and cultural contexts of the Arab world and the Middle East. The designation “Arab American” is linked to the category “Global Arab” yet deserves special attention as a distinct subfield within American literature that engages with the discourses of race and ethnicity in the United States as well as with the history of Arab and Middle Eastern migrations to the Americas.

    I was wondering if the proposal particularly specifies Global Arab comics or can we include other forms like global Arab fiction?

    Hello Dina,

    Thank you for your interest in our panel. For this collaborative panel between the Global Arab and Arab American Literature forum and the Comics and Graphic Narratives forum, we are looking for work that addresses comics/graphic narratives written by or about Arabs in or outside the U.S.

    We hope you can submit something if this topic interests you.

    Regards,

    Pauline
