Lisa Marchi, "Scompigliare le carte della letteratura arabo-americana: Un’analisi di gender/genre" ACOMA, XXV (Spring/Summer 2018), 14, 2018, pp. 91-110. 
_______________
 
This essay surveys the origin and developments of Arab-American literature, taking into consideration the intricacy of the gender/genre pair. Drawing on Judith Butler’s provocative text Gender Trouble and Precarious Life, the essay disturbs the linear and progressive representation of the history of Arab presence in the US and its ensuing literature. Arab-American historians, novelists, poets, and playwrights, the author argues, have attempted to, and most of the time succeeded in, making visible subjectivities and personal histories that would have otherwise remained outside the frame of representation. By bending well-established gender norms with fixed genre prescriptions, they have managed to inaugurate and reinforce intercultural, interracial, and transnational alliances, to shake dogmas, thus opening up spaces of contestation, recognition, and liberation that are not only locally but also globally relevant.

Ida Zilio Grandi, "Fuga ed esilio di Mayy Ziyāda (Nazareth 1886 – Il Cairo 1941)", in Donne in fuga – Mujeres en fuga, a cura di | editado por Monica Giachino, Adriana Mancini, Edizioni Ca' Foscari (ECF), Venezia 2018, pp. 59-74. 
_______________
The life of Mayy Ziyāda, a complex – and still underestimated – intellectual figure at the time of the Nahḍa or Arab «renaissance», appears in many ways a gradual and necessary flight from the world and, at the same time, a progressive refinement of the sensibility. From her birth in Nazareth, her youth amid the nationalist and anti-British agitation in Cairo, a cosmopolitan and multicultural city, to her hospitalization in a psychiatric hospital in Beirut, then finally back to Cairo where she died in utter solitude, Mayy Ziyāda’s wide and varied literary production speaks for those who, fleeing from themselves and from the emotions of a world at once changing and resisting change, are foreigners everywhere, forever «in the wrong place».
