This workshop endeavors to look at the conceptions and configurations of the Arabic literary canon as it was conceived by pre-modern Arab scholars, later reconfigured by early-modern orientalist scholars in Europe, and engaged with by modern and contemporary Arab writers, whether in Arabic or in English.

The workshop brings together scholars working on Arabic literature (classical, modern, contemporary), on orientalist scholarship from perspectives that can be both philological and historiographical, on the historiography of colonialism and empire and its relation to literary transfers and translations, and in the fields of literary criticism, translation, postcolonial, and decolonial studies.
