Fall 2018 - Beginnings
ArabLit Quarterly emerged in 2018 from the community around the ArabLit website and Bulaq podcast. It aims to bring out beautiful literary translations from Arabic, fresh work by Arab artists, and also new forms of literary criticism that re-frame the discussions around Arabic literature, translation, and art. In our pages, you can find classical Arabic recipes in translation, illuminative infographics, and literary playlists.
This CATS themed issue of ArabLit Quarterly features short stories, poetry, essays, art, science, and the politics of cats. With classic modern fiction by Ghada Samman and Layla Baalbaki, encyclopedic works from the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries, as well as new fiction, poetry, essays and more by a wide range of contemporary writers from across the region.
