القراءة المبكرة

هنري ميلر  لم أبدأ بإعادة قراءة كتب معيّنة إلا في السنوات القليلة الماضية. أستطيع أن أتذكّر بدقّة الكتب الأولى التي أفردتُها من أجل إعادة القراءة: ولادة المأساة، الزوج الأبدي، أليس في بلاد العجائب،الطقوس الإمبراطورية الفاحشة، وكتاب هامسن ألغاز.إن هامسن، كما قلتُ في غالب الأحيان، هو أحد المؤلفين الذين أثّروا فيّ بقوة ككاتب. لم يجذبني كتاب من كتبه مثلما فعل كتاب ألغاز. ففي تلك الفترة التي تحدثتُ عنها من قبل، حين بدأت بفصل مؤلفيّ المفضّلين كي أكتشف قوة السحر لديهم، كان الكتّاب الذين ركزت عليهم هم هامسن أولاً، ثم آرثر ماتشن، ثم توماس مان. وحين أعدتُ قراءة ولادة المأساةأتذكر أنني ذُهلتُ من استخدام نيتشه السحري للغة. ومنذ بضع سنوات فقط، وبفضل إيفا سيكليانو، أسكرني هذا ...

Twenty Years of Talks: Keeping Palestine Occupied

[Screenshot from infographic below. Image by Visualizing Palestine.]

Twenty years ago, the PLO Central Committee approved the Oslo Accord with the Israeli government. Israeli-Palestinian talks were slated to conclude within five years, yet two decades on Israel's occupation continues, and the situation on the ground has only moved backwards for Palestinians. The infographic "Twenty Years of Talks", produced in collaboration with AIDA (the Association of International Development Agencies) focuses on this deteriorating reality.  An ever-increasing Israeli settler population, continuing dispossession of Palestinians, and a comprehensive system of segregation define the landscape. In spite of the Palestinian ...

هل تحتاج الثورة إلى قانون للتظاهر؟


لم يسبق في تاريخ الثورات أن احتاجت ثورة إلى قانون للتظاهر¡ ناهيك عن كون هذا القانون يتطلب ترخيصاً للتظاهر من وزارة داخلية النظام القديم عينه الذي قامت الثورة من أجل إزالته. وهذا ما حصل في مصر الأسبوع الماضي. لذا ينشأ السؤال: هل هي ثورة؟ أو: هل ما زالت ثورة؟ وإذا كانت ثورة، بمعايير الثورات السابقة، ينبغي أن تحقق تغييراً على أحد مستويين على الأقل،       الأول سياسي، والثاني اقتصادي-اجتماعي، حتى تحقق أهدافها، فمن الجلي أن هذا لم يتم في مصر، وقد تم جزئياً على المستوى الأول في تونس. وهي ما زالت "ثورة" في مصر فقط بمعنى المسعى للتغيير غير المكتمل بعد.  ذلك أن انتقال الحكم من الإخوان إلى العسكر، أو بشكل أعم، إحلال مجموعة أو حزب أو ...

[Image of the Lycée Gouraut, predecessor of the Lycée Descartes in Rabat, Morocco. Image from Wikimedia Commons.]

In Morocco, policymakers have recently implemented several groundbreaking initiatives aiming to create educational programs to empower rural women.
