Sent: 24 January 2014 20:58 ANNOUNCEMENT Publication of Jurji Zaidan’s Contributions to Modern Arab Thought and Literature. Edited by George C Zaidan and Thomas Philipp Published by the Zaidan Foundation Dear All, I am pleased to inform you of the publication of Jurji Zaidan’s Contributions to Modern Arab Thought and Literature. This volume consists of twelve essays commissioned by the Zaidan Foundation for a Symposium sponsored by the Library of Congress and the Zaidan Foundation and held at the Library of Congress on June 5th, 2012 in Washington DC. The essays were prepared by a group of eminent scholars in literature, history and other disciplines in leading universities in the US, Canada, France and the Middle East working on the Nahda or Arab awakening of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and, in particular, on Jurji Zaidan’s leading role in this movement. The scope of the essays cover many areas that Zaidan influenced in important ways—in particular his role as historical novelist, journalist, political scientist, educator and social reformer. Contributors include Professors Roger Allen of the University of Pennsylvania, Georges Corm of Saint-Joseph University, Michael Cooperson of UCLA, Anne-Laure Dupont and Zaïneb Ben Lagha from the Sorbonne, Marwa Elshakry from Columbia University, William Granara from Harvard University, Jens Hanssen from the University of Toronto, Thomas Philipp from Erlangen-Nürnberg, as well as Dr Ismail Serageldin, Director of the Library of Alexandria and Dr George C. Zaidan. Additionally, this volume includes translated articles by Jurji Zaidan relevant to some of the themes of the essays.
