About this book

Through a detailed study of Mayy Ziy?dah's literary salon, Boutheina Khaldi sheds light on salon and epistolary culture in early twentieth-century Egypt and its role in Egypt's Nahdah (Awakening). Bringing together history, women's studies, Arabic literature, post-colonial literature, and media studies, she highlights the important and previously little-discussed contribution of Arabic women to the project of modernity.

About the authors

Boutheina Khaldi is Assistant Professor of Arabic and Translation Studies at the American University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

Reviews

"In writing this book about Mayy Ziy?dah and her early twentieth-century Cairo salon, which for the first time brought together the male and female literati of the Arab world, Boutheina Khaldi has contributed a crucial missing element in the construction of the modern Arabic literary canon." - Miriam Cooke, professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Duke University
