ANN: Histories and Archives of Arabic Publishing (online lecture series)

Sarah Johnson's picture

An online series of talks entitled Histories and Archives of Arabic Publishing co-curated and convened by Daniel Lowe at the British Library and Hana Sleiman at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge.

 

This series brings together researchers, artists, designers, archivists and curators to explore publishing practices in Arabic as a site for unfolding transnational intellectual networks, artistic practices and political imaginaries from the 1960s until the present. You can find further details about the series here: https://blogs.bl.uk/asian-and-african/2021/04/haap.html

 

The series is co-organised in partnership with Delfina Foundation and the Middle East History Group, Faculty of History, University of Cambridge. For your convenience I have pasted the schedule below with Zoom registration links.
