Transnational Solidarity and the Arab Uprisings

(p.177) Conclusion
Contemporary Arab-American Literature

Carol Fadda-Conrey

NYU Press

This concluding chapter outlines new directions in the field, such as the circulation of Arab American texts and other medium within transnational and translocal circuits. The current expansion of the Arab-American literary and cultural scene includes an increase in the variety of genres being produced as well as in the number of intellectual, virtual, and physical spaces available for showcasing such work. Such efforts further help Americans in understanding how the transnational aspects of Arab-American literature and culture alter various spaces of knowledge about minoritized identities across different spaces and temporalities. The chapter also discusses the impact of the Arab uprising on Arab America. Within the Arab world, specifically in countries that experienced the Arab Spring, the will of the people to demand much-needed revolutionary reforms in government and political leadership have had a major effect on Arab diasporics' connections to their homelands.

Keywords:   Arab-American literature, Arab-American culture, minoritized identities, Arab uprising, Arab Spring, revolutionary reforms, Arab diasporics, homeland
