The Second Jordanian International Francophone Conference entitled “The International Critical Reception of A Thousand and One Nights in the Fields of Human Sciences” follows the first international conference of “Interculturality in the Classroom Learning” held at Al-Albayt University in 2006. It aims to achieve more global and cultural interaction and to invoke and arouse new questions about the book of A Thousand and One Nights that originates from rich and variable cultural sources and considered a part of the global human cultural heritage due to its translation into many languages.

The French critic Bernard Pingaud maintains that “great literary works are the ones that excite and attract researchers and wraps them with their perpetual magic. Such great literary works are abundantly rich and always open for criticism.”

The artistic, intellectual, cultural, psychological, and taboo reservoir of information makes the captivating book of A Thousand and One Nights subject to re-reading in terms of its intrinsic value and its influence upon Translation, Criticism, and intertextuality as well as its influence upon world literature, Gender studies, Feminist Literature, Children Literature, Comics, Japanese Manga Art, Fine Arts, Music, Drama, Cinema, Televised Films, and Cartoons particularly when the book is considered using contemporary critical theory and reader reception theory.
