ARAB 4230 - Love, War, and Diaspora in Hoda Barakat’s Writings

In this course, we will examine the themes of love, war, and diaspora in the literature of the Lebanese writer, Hoda Barakat. Some of the topics that will interest us are: the role of the author as a witness to the Lebanese civil war, the challenges of rewriting history, recreating the homeland’s image in diasporic locales, collective and individual memories and its role in trauma recall and testimony.
