Migrant Literature from the Arabian Gulf (Khaleej)

updated: 
Sunday, May 20, 2018 - 9:16pm
SAMLA 2018 Conference-Sheraton Birmingham-Birmingham, Alabama
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 11, 2018

Contemporary migrant literature/s from the Arabian Gulf implore us to examine and reinterpret the ethico-political practices of a land that is paradoxically inhabited primarily by people from elsewhere. Non-citizens are a significant part of Gulf’s population. Benyamin’s Goat Days, Deepak Unnikrishnan’s Temporary People, Saud Al Sanousi’s The Bamboo Stalk, and Mia Alvar’s In the Country are some of the texts that make visible the particular anxieties of modern Arabian Gulf migratory politics through fiction.
