Egypt Awakening in the Early Twentieth Century : Mayy Ziyadah's Intellectual Circles Hardback

Part of the Middle East Today series

Description

Through a detailed study of Mayy Ziy?dah's literary salon, Boutheina Khaldi sheds light on salon and epistolary culture in early twentieth-century Egypt and its role in Egypt's Nahdah (Awakening).

Bringing together history, women's studies, Arabic literature, post-colonial literature, and media studies, she highlights the important and previously little-discussed contribution of Arabic women to the project of modernity.
