Aim & Scope:

Middle Eastern Literatures is endorsed by the Union Europénne des Arabisants et Islamisants (UEAI) and Classical Arabic Poetry Symposium (CAPS), and provides a forum for the academic study of all Middle Eastern literatures. Works on literature composed in, for example, Persian, Turkish, post-Biblical and modern Hebrew, Kurdish, or Urdu are welcomed. Regional literatures of the area, such as the Arabic, French, and Tamazight ("Berber") literature from North Africa, also fall within the scope of the journal. The editors welcome high quality scholarly contributions (in English, French, or German) devoted to aspects of either one or several of the literatures of the Middle East, whether classical or modern.

Our project is eclectic. Middle Eastern Literatures encourages studies of a cross- and multi-linguistic nature that focus on East-West (and/or East-East) relations. Articles that examine the relationship of literature with other arts and media (visual arts, music, theatre, and film) will also be welcomed. The editors encourage the submission of translations of literary texts, accompanied by an introduction and full bibliographical details. From time to time, the journal will publish special issues focusing on a particular aspect of the literatures of the Middle East.

In a wider sense, our project aims at broadening available networks of communication. The journal hopes to promote a dialogue between scholars of Middle Eastern literatures and their colleagues working in other academic disciplines and world regions, and particularly those who are engaged in the study of other literatures (Western and non-Western alike). The aim is to foster an active exchange of views and information. To that end the journal will provide regular bibliographies of books and articles and will maintain a comprehensive book review section.
