Author Visit: Sonallah Ibrahim
Sonallah Ibrahim "one of Egypt's most formally interesting and politically
uncompromising writers" will be giving a public talk in conversation with
Professor Noha Radwan (Arabic & Comp Lit, UC Davis) and Professor Alexander
Key (Arabic & Comp Lit, Stanford) in the Humanities Center Boardoom from
5:30-7:30pm on Monday 6 May 2013. His most recently translated book, "That
Smell" "was a breathtakingly subversive answer to the problem of the
omnipresence of the state in daily life and the inability of Arabic
literature to express and capture that reality. It met with immediate
censorship." (Yasmine El Rashidi , NYRB)
Co-sponsored by the Department of Comparative Literature, the Department of
History, the Graduate Student Council, the Arab Studies Table, and the
Stanford Humanities Center
