Arab American Identity Symposium

A Discursive Approach to the Formation of Arab American Identity: Literature, Politics, and Archival Evidence

A free symposium, open to the public

Monday, March 15, 2010
3:30 - 8:00pm
Alfred Berkowitz Gallery in the Mardigian Library

This mini symposium, sponsored by the Center for Arab American Studies, seeks to introduce neglected strands of early Arab American life in a public forum. The growing scholarship on the early Arabic-speaking immigrants to the United States often relies on settled assumptions about their political life, and barely scratches the surface of their massive literary output in both the English and Arabic languages. Two salient misconceptions of the current discourse are that the early immigrants exhibited rampant sectarianism in the press, and indifference toward homeland political issues. Pioneering scholarship in this symposium proposes a new perspective of the formation of Arab American identity based on new theoretical and historical foundations.

Reception to follow.

More information at casl.umd.umich.edu/ under Events.

Featured Speakers:

Dr. Wail Hassan explores the representations of that identity by examining Abraham Mitrie Rihbany's autobiography, A Far Journey (1914).

Dr. Lawrence Davidson is the first scholar to describe the political activities of a number of Arab immigrant authors and reporters.

Dr. Hani Bawardi bridges the two discussions by chronicling representations of nationalism in the literature from the same period.
