Tahia Abdel Nasser

Edinburgh Studies in Modern Arabic Literature

  • Traces the effects of anticolonial and anti-imperialist movements on Arab autobiographical production in Arabic, English, and French in the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries
  • Provides a new assessment of autobiographical works in Arab literature and a contribution to discussions of postcolonialism and world literature
  • Considers the genre's affinities with other literatures in the global South
  • Examines the effects of national movements on contemporary reworkings of the genre in which Arab writers re-envision subjectivity in national cultures and transnational networks
