In August 2017, a Christian man and a Muslim woman (Boutros and Marwa) made headlines when they married in Lebanon. Why? One might assume that the interreligious nature of the couple prompted this media attention. However, that was far ...

فدوى سليمان الجنة والجحيم

[الفنانة والشاعرة السورية فدوى سليمان]

-غرفة العرس في دير بعلبة-        قررتُ الذهاب إلى حمص. مغمورة بالسعادة ومؤمنة بالحب وبالثورة ومتمسكة بكليهما، في لحظة فاصلة بين المظاهرات السلمية وبروز التسلح، سافرتُ إلى المدينة الواقفة على فوهة بركان، ولم تكن الحرب قد استعرتْ في نهاية 2011. لا يخفى أن النظام قد اختار حمص لتنفيذ مقولاته وأكاذيبه الأولى حول العصابات المسلحة والسلفيين، مستغلاً تنوعها الكبير في تأجيج العنف طائفياً. حذّرني الذين حولي من شيء أعرفه: "فدوى، أنت مجنونة! مَن يفكر بالذهاب إلى هناك ضمن تلك الظروف!؟" فأجبتهم: "على العكس، هذا هو الوقت المناسب، تحت القصف".       تعرفتُ إلى زوجي عبر الفيسبوك. أخبرته في بداية تعارفنا عن رغبتي بالذهاب إلى حمص. قبل ...

Roundtable: Harold Wolpe’s Intellectual Agenda and Writing on Palestine

Introduction (by Max Ajl) In a well-known programmatic note on the relationship of theoretical work to politics, Harold Wolpe, a South African sociologist, anti-apartheid activist, briefly political prisoner, then exile, rejected two opposing positions on intellectual labor. The first was the assertion of complete autonomy, in the sense that research ought to simply emerge organically from the will and whims of the intellectual. The second was a stance of simple justification for the party line. Instead of those two opposing positions, he opted for a sort of accountable independence: “In this sense, the priorities defined at the political level became also the ...

إيتل عدنان عن فدوى سليمان

     نعلمُ إن القدر قاسٍ، ولكنه دوماً أقسى مما ظنناه. تعرّفتُ إلى فدوى مؤخراً، ورأيتُ شدّة التزامها بكلّ ما يؤثّر فيها. أثناء محادثتها، رأيتُ إلى أيّ حدّ لم تكن تحتمل الظلم في هذا العالم. كانت قد كرّستْ نفسها من أجل سورية مفتوحة للجميع، سورية السلام. كانت قد كرّستْ نفسها للشعر أيضاً. لقد فقدنا بوفاتها شاعرة كبيرة وضوءً أمامنا. أرجو منكم قراءة شعرها، بانتباه، والإنصات إلى صوتها عبر كلماتِها وأفكارها، ونشدان العدالة، على منوالها، عبر اللاعنف. أقول لها إننا لن ننساها أبداً. -إيتل ...

##NeverForget: Sixteen Years into the “War on Terror” and Institutionalized Islamophobia Lives on

September 2017 marked the sixteenth anniversary of the start of the “war on terror.” While hashtags such as #NeverForget and #September11th were trending on Twitter, there was little mention of the victims of post-9/11 counter-terrorism laws and policies – namely, Muslims or those racialized as Muslims. This is because the term “post-9/11 world” is meant to center on the devastation and destruction faced by the United States on 11 September 2001. It does not acknowledge how the United States adopted a ...
