Writers published in Sukoon Magazine and the Michigan Quarterly Review’s special issue on Persecution will share their work and participate in a panel discussion around the theme of persecution, injustice, displacement and disenfranchisement. Arab writers and artists will share their poetry, essays, music and film and engage in dialogue about what it means to up the stakes on human rights campaigns and artistic endeavors that transcend borders. In the shifting political and literary landscape of Arab culture, what does the future hold?

Featuring writers/artists Rahim AlHaj, Zeina Hashem Beck, Esmat Elhalaby, Mona Kareem, Ahmed Naji and Hind Shoufani, with host/emcee Rewa Zeinati and panel moderator Khaled Mattawa.
