Stream #2 – Black Affect and Minor Feelings, OCTOBER 14-17
"…we know for certain that the solution to the Black Man's problems will come only through Black National Consciousness. We also know that the focus of change will be racial. (If we feel differently, we have different ideas. Race is feeling…Art is one method of expressing these feelings and identifying the form as an emotional phenomenon."

Arabic literature, declared Edward Said in 1990, "remains relatively unknown and unread in the West, for reasons that are unique, even remarkable."
More than twenty years later, it is hard to say that the situation has remained the same: there has been a notable rise in the quantity of Arabic literary works available in several European languages. Yet, considering the increased interest in Arab and Muslim societies following various political events and the remarkable growth of Arabic literature (especially the novel) in recent years, it is rather surprising that translating and publishing Arabic literature in European languages is often seen as something of a gamble.
