“Til Sect Do You Part?” On Sectarianism and Intermarriage in Lebanon

In August 2017, a Christian man and a Muslim woman (Boutros and Marwa) made headlines when they married in Lebanon. Why? One might assume that the interreligious nature of the couple prompted this media attention. However, that was far ...

“Til Sect Do You Part?” On Sectarianism and Intermarriage in Lebanon

In August 2017, a Christian man and a Muslim woman (Boutros and Marwa) made headlines when they married in Lebanon. Why? One might assume that the interreligious nature of the couple prompted this media attention. However, that was far from the case. In my current research on Lebanese social responses to interreligious and intersectarian marriages/long-term relationships, I have had no difficulty locating people to interview. Mixed couples are more common than people often imagine, and exist to varying extents across generations, classes, and communities. As such, it is unlikely that a mixed marriage would make the news. No, what warranted media attention in this case ...

 [ترجمة أسامة إسبر] الجيل الأخير كان من الأسهل بكثير أن تكون عبقرياً في العشرينيات، لم يكن هناك إلا ثلاث أو أربع مجلات أدبية وإذا نشرْتَ فيها أربع أو خمس مرات يمكن أن يفتح لك صالون ”جيرتي“ أبوابه وقد تحظى بلقاء مع بيكاسو لتناول كأس نبيذ أو ربما فقط مع ميرو. وإذا أرسلتَ عملك ممهوراً بختمٍ بريديٍّ من باريس ستحصل على فرص أفضل للنشر ذلك أن كثيراً من الكتاب يذيّلون مخطوطاتهم بكلمة ”باريس“ وبتاريخ. وإذا وُجِد راعٍ ستمتلك الوقت كي تؤلف وتأكل وتشرب وتقوم بنزهات في السيارة إلى إيطاليا وأحياناً إلى اليونان. سيكون جيداً أن تُلتقط لك صور مع آخرين من نوعك سيكون رائعاً أن تبدو مرتباً وغامضاً ونحيلاً وستكون الصور الملتقطة على الشاطئ عظيمة. نعم، وبوسعك أن تكتب ...

[An image of Ahmed Ouyahia, current Algerian prime minister. Image from Wikimedia Commons]

It was the second unexpected sacking of an Algerian prime minister in less than three months. After Abdelmalek Sellal, Abdemajid Tebboune's turn came with no going-away party. The prime ministers fell one after the other, and one wondered who could be next to take the challenge. But, with hardly time to ask the question, he has appeared. The Man in the Iron Mustache, Ahmed Ouyahia, is back. In the black-suited trappings of a technocrat, he is round and smiling, yet still harsh. At a time of economic emergency, he has jumped to the front lines, and this is no laughing matter. The Rise of the Bureaucratic-Military Mustache In an activity as marked by appearances and ...

Call for Papers: Arab Studies Journal Special Issue

 Visualizing Change: Graphic Arts and Literature in the Contemporary Arab World Guest Editors: Eid Mohamed and Barkuzar Dubbati This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic literature and arts in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of means of production of these works. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and ...

The Politics of the Public Sphere and Navigating State Interactions: The Case of al-Midan Theatre

The history of Israel and the country’s founding lends itself to a complicated understanding of the public sphere. In 1948, Zionist forces expelled upwards of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes; however, fifteen percent of the Palestinians who lived on the land that would subsequently become the State of Israel remained.[1] This segment of the Palestinian population, or ’48 Palestinians, were often forced into neighboring majority Arab villages or corralled into certain neighborhoods in “mixed cities” such as Haifa and Jaffa, which also brings into debate how truly “mixed” such cities are. In consequence, there are now several different public spheres within ...

Egypt’s Power Game: Why Cairo is Boosting its Military Power

Recent spending patterns in Egypt pose a dilemma. While experiencing the worst economic crisis in decades, which involves a dwindling of resources, a sharp currency devaluation and an acute shortage of foreign exchange, levels of military spending in Egypt have dramatically increased. How can the two trends be reconciled? Why would a cash-strapped government spend massively on guns when its population of 90 million needs more bread and jobs and services? This peculiar pattern began to take shape as soon ...

'The King Is Good, the Political Class Is Bad': A Tired Myth

Following this year’s “Throne Day” speech on 29 July 2017, commentators were unanimous: Morocco’s King Mohammed VI’s offensive against political parties was more violent than ever. In Morocco, however, the “crisis,” “weakness,” and “dysfunction” of parties is a repeated refrain. After the death of King Hassan II, new tonalities have enriched the refrain, which have been injected into the discourses held by a wide range of enunciators, including ordinary citizens, the media, actors of “civil ...
