New Texts Out Now: Abir Hamdar, The Female Suffering Body: Illness and Disability in Modern Arabic Literature

[Cover of Abir Hamdar,

Abir Hamdar, The Female Suffering Body: Illness and Disability in Modern Arabic Literature. Syracuse: Syracuse University Press, 2014. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Abir Hamdar (AH): The whole project was triggered by a question from a friend. She was suffering from a chronic illness and said she found solace in reading about the stories of women with similar experiences. As someone who works on Arabic literature, she had asked me to recommend Arabic literary works that narrate the experiences of women with a physical illness and that she could read—except that I couldn’t think of a single novel or short story. I had readily available a list of Arabic ...

Even Morocco’s Friends Know Its Judicial System Is Corrupt and Lacking in Due Process

[Image of Morocc's Court of Justice. Image by Kathrin Mezger/Flickr]

On 13 August 2014, a US federal court declined to enforce a 123 million dollar judgment issued by a Moroccan court in 2009 against Texas native John Paul DeJoria. In Dejoria v. Maghreb Petroleum Exploration S.A. (W.D. Tex. 13 August 2014), the court laid out various reasons for refusing to recognize the verdict, focusing on the absence of an independent judiciary and the unlimited influence of the Moroccan royal family, especially King Mohammad VI, on the country’s judicial system. In opining on Morocco’s judiciary, the federal court held that: The Moroccan court judgment was not rendered under a system that provides impartial tribunals and procedures ...

Making Sense of Tripoli I: The Security Trap or Conflating Cause and Effect

[Lebanese flag graffiti. Image by Bilal Kamoon via Flickr]

Although there are periodic respites, the conflict in Tripoli, Lebanon has become almost routinized with sporadic outbreaks in clashes—some more intense than others. Coverage of “the conflict” has also become routinized, with bursts of reporting, some stronger than others. Generally, analysis revolves around the three S’s: Spillover, Sectarianism, and Salafists. This trifecta of reductionist analysis problematically misrepresents the unfolding situation in Tripoli. To the extent that the causes of the clashes are considered at all, they are considered a security problem. The claim is that Tripoli is overrun by militias and their arms. However, this view conflates cause ...

Lebanon: Rejecting the New Rent Law: An Open Letter to the Parliament

[

[After twenty-four years of putting forth different rent bills, the Lebanese Parliament has issued a law to liberalize old rent contracts, published in the Official Gazette on 26 June 2014. A committee to protect the rights of tenants in Lebanon has been formed to oppose this new rent law, and has organized a number of protests throughout Beirut to demand its revision. A blog providing information about the law and documenting activists' initiatives against the new law has also been set up.  Protests have been multiplying over the past week, and a march towards the Speaker's House in Ain el-Tineh is organized on Wednesday 10 December to further pressure on ...

تأملات في الصوت الأول

[

للحياة صوت، فالحضارة صوت، والفنون صوت، والإنسان صوت، والحيوان صوت، والله صوت، والدين صوت، و الثقافة صوت، والحرب صوت، و السلم صوت، والإنتاج صوت، فالحياة كلها صوت، ولا صمت إلا الموت (والصمت تأويل للصوت). ولولا غرق الإنسان في إدراك الحياة بعينه لا بأذنه، لأمكنه أن يُغير مفهومه لوجوده كذات وموضوع معًا ويمتلك حرية أكبر فيما يتعلق بهما، بالإستناد لكل الأصوات حوله وفيه، إذ أن هوس الحضارة الإنسانية بالمراقبة والقياس والتحجيم والتشكيل، يحجب عنه –الإنسان- جوانب مختلفة من ذاته ومحيطه وعالمه. مع إنتقال "المدلول" من "الدال" السمعي/الأذني/الشفاهي، إلى "الدال" المرئي/العياني/الكتابي، يتغلب النزوع المادي على المعنوي له، وهنا تبدأ بنيوية السلطة والسيطرة ...

سعيد عقل والأسئلة التي يثيرها الموت

[

بعد أن يموت شاعر يبقى حياً في القصائد التي يبدعها، وفي الأصداء التي يولّدها، وفي الحساسيات التي يُغْْنيها، وفي القراءات المتعددة التي يُتيحها نصه الإبداعي. غير أن سعيد عقل لم يُقرأ بعد قراءة نقدية عميقة ومعظم ما كُتب عنه يندرج في إطار نظرة توفيقية تسامحية لا تمتلك رؤية حول ما هو فني أو غير فني على المستوى الشعري، أي أنها قراءة صحفية وهي الآن مرتبطة بموته أكثر مما هي مرتبطة بأي شيء آخر، وقد يكون السبب في هذا تدهور الجامعات لدينا والتي لا تكترث بتدريس الشعراء الكبار أوبدراستهم، وبغياب الفكر النقدي أيضاً. وهذه النظرة التسامحية تشمل مواقفه السياسية المثيرة للجدل والتي عكست نظرة لا تليق بشاعر كبير مثله، بل كانت كفيلة بأن تلغي أهميته كشاعر، ذلك أنه لم يعتذر عن هذه المواقف، ولم ...

خطة دي ميستورا ... استكمال لصيغة جنيف وليست انقلاباً عليها

[عن مجلة

سنتان ونصف السنة منذ إعلان بيان جنيف الأول ولم يتم تطبيق أي جزئية منه في القضية السورية، على الرغم من أن جميع اللاعبين الرئيسيين، السوريين والدوليين، إما أعلنوا موافقتهم على بيان جنيف أو بالحد الأدنى لم يبدوا اعتراضهم عليه. فهل ينقلب دي ميستورا حقاً على جنيف كما يحاججنا إبراهيم حميدي ("الحياة" 18/11/2014) أم أنه يستكمله في النواقص التي عطلت تطبيقه؟ أولاً لنتذكر أن جنيف هو اتفاق دولي تم التوصل إليه من دون أي مشاركة سورية، وبالتالي فإن تطبيقه كاملاً سيبقى رهناً بالتوافق الدولي. تركزت جهود الأخضر الإبراهيمي على تحقيق هذا المستوى من التوافق المطلوب لتطبيق جنيف، من دون أن يقوم بالكثير من الخطوات داخل البلد نفسها، لكن أصبح جلياً الآن أن هذا التوافق هو سراب لا يمكننا ...

From Raqqa to Derna: Exceptionalism in Expansionism

[Image courtesy of Al-Wasat]

In early November, militants affiliated with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria took full control of the Libyan city of Derna, festooning government buildings with the familiar flag bearing the shahada and celebrating their victory over their opponents within the city. A coastal settlement of around 100,000, less than two hundred miles from the eastern city of Benghazi and hours from Tobruk, where the internationally-recognized House of Representative rules from, the loss of Derna aroused fears within the West of further Islamist and ISIS domination over restive and ungoverned Libya. As news outlets and Libyan watchers across the ideological divide pointed out, a ...
