A four-week summer seminar for fifteen high school teachers on the Arabic novel.

The aim of this seminar will be to introduce 15 high-school teacher-participants to a literary tradition with which relatively few teachers in this country are familiar, that of Arabic, and more specifically to modern Arabic fiction and its cultural context.
