Book Description

Using a theoretical framework located at the intersection of US ethnic studies, transnational studies, and postcolonial studies, Articulations of Resistance: Transformative Practices in Arab-American Poetry maps an interdisciplinary model of critical inquiry to demonstrate the intimate link and multilayered connections between poetry and resistance. In this study of contemporary Arab-American poetry, Sirène Harb analyzes how resistance, defined as the force challenging the dominant, intervenes in ways of rethinking the local and the global vis-à-vis traditional paradigms of time, space, language and value.
