Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This essay examines Arab literature written in English. It provides an overview of the recent but burgeoning critical studies of this field, and assesses the widely used labels of "Anglophone Arab" or "Anglo-Arab" in these studies. It highlights the limitations of this "Anglophone Arab" designation and suggests that the critical concept of "diaspora" be applied to this writing to overcome, even if partially, some of these limitations.
