Why Arab Hyphen? The word for art in Arabic is fen – which is also how you pronounce the latter part of the word “hyphen.” This blog is about Arab art, diaspora, identity and culture and the title was my idea of a terrible pun.
My name is Tasnim Qutait, and I am a Phd researcher in English at Uppsala University. My dissertation examines Anglo-Arab cultural production and cultural memory in diasporic postcolonial contexts – or what Gayatri Spivak describes as “the crease between global postcoloniality and postcolonial migrancy”.
