Lahoucine Ouzgane

New: Revised Deadline

Contributions are sought for a collection, being prepared for Oxford UP,
on teaching the Middle Eastern and North African novel. The volume is
divided into two main sections: the first devoted to theoretical
approaches and the second to the different course and institutional
contexts in which the novels are taught; the volume will also include a
resources section. One-page abstracts and brief bios are invited by July
1, 2006, although I encourage potential contributors to contact me well in
advance; selected contributors will then be asked to submit complete
essays by February 1, 2007. Queries welcome:
