Global Tensions and Regional Visions:
Contemporary Conflicts in North African Literature

A session sponsored by the Society for Critical Exchange
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
Boston, Mass., Feb. 26 â€" March 1, 2008

This panel seeks to examine the impact of 9/11 and subsequent
conflicts in the Middle East on North African representations of
global violence. Participants are encouraged to consider the
aesthetic potential and ideological implications of North African
representations of global violence alongside local cultural
discourse. In so doing, this panel hopes to shed light on some of
the contemporary challenges that North African Francophone
literature faces in the changing geopolitical map of the world.
