Contemporary Arab-American Literature
Transnational Reconfigurations of Citizenship and Belonging
"Engaging a stunning array of Arab American writers, Fadda-Conrey offers an original analysis of the ways in which Arab American literature articulates new forms of citizenship, forms that are transnational in scope and that reconfigure notions of geography and belonging. This will be the go-to book on Arab American literature."
—Evelyn Alsultany, author of Arabs and Muslims in the Media
"This book can be read as an introduction to Arab-American literature or as a reference to enrich one’s understanding of this relatively new and exciting field. Fadda-Conrey writes with passion and analytical precision about a topic in which she is obviously well versed and deeply involved."
"Fadda-Conrey's work is sure to make a lasting impact on the way we think about not only Arab American artistic and cultural production but also the relationship between ethnic identity, American citizenship, and transnational belonging."
“[Fadda-Conrey’s] preference for the term ‘transnational enactments’ allows for such variances as physical mobility and imaginative attachment and favors ‘larger structures of belonging.’”
