Project: The Circulation of Ideas between Gender Theories and Literary and Artistic Works in Maghrebi Texts in the Wake of the Arab Springs

About the project

Project manager
Kirsten Husung

The aim of this project is to publish a special edition of Expressions maghrébines (2023) with Touriya Fili-Tullon of the University of Lyon 2. The contributions selected will investigate how theoretical and literary texts address gender issues in the Maghreb in the wake of the Arab Springs and how they may influence each other. Within this project I am investigating a tendency in Moroccan Literature written by female authors with the focus on female agency and empowerment.
