This week we will start our discussion of Radwa Ashour’s Spectres and Mourid Barghouthi’s I Saw Ramallah. The previous post gives some contextualization of the lives and works of these two writers and some of their connections.
Both books are autobiographical, both also employ different kinds of literary styles.
We will begin our discussions of the texts with contexts and reminding ourselves of some of our world literature definitions and then move on to specific readings of them in subsequent classes.
Don’t forget to move forward on your manifestos!! The end of term is coming soon, even if the snow makes you forget that!!
