Organizer: Sattar Izwaini

Co-organizer: Imed Nsiri


The Arabic language and literature have long been present in different venues at the global level where Arabic-speaking individuals have been engaged in activities of language learning and mediation as well as those of literary nature. Arabic is used by a large number of speakers around the world and is an official language in many international organizations. It has also been taught and studied in different universities and centers.


International organizations and media channels have had Arabic as one of its publishing languages whether in press or audiovisual productions. These also have Arabic websites to disseminate reports, technical material and news.


The present seminar will look at the global context in which Arabic is active, and how individuals and organizations deal with Arabic in a context outside Arab countries. Researchers are invited to submit abstracts about (but not limited to) the following topics:

 
  1. Arabic literature in translation

  2. Arabic literature in diaspora

  3. Self-translation of Arabic literature

  4. Arabic in global business context (international organizations, international companies such as Google, Microsoft, Netflix)


Abstracts should be between 300-400 words.
