Description or Abstract
The Arabic Cultural program hosts novelists Basma Abdel Aziz, Mohamed Rabie and Na’il al-Tukhi to discuss representations of dystopia in their most recent works. Abdel Aziz’s al-Tabur(The Queue, 2013) Rabie’s Otared (Mercury, 2015) and Eltoukhy’s Nisa’ al-Karantina (Women of Karantina, 2014) all imagine the post-2011 world as a chaotic and violent nightmare.
