Themed issue of the Arab Studies Journal on "Wayn al-Dawleh?" In Search of the Lebanese State.ASJ seeks submissions for a special issue whose premise is the viability of the Lebanese state. We particularly encourage contributions that explicitly engage with theories of the state. The call is open to all disciplines and a wide range of methodological approaches, including ethnography, case study comparison, historical research, and discourse analysis.
In “Cultures of Resistance in Palestine and Beyond: The Politics of Art, Aesthetics, and Affect,” Sophie Richter-Devroe and Ruba Salih introduce the imperatives, questions, and ideas that inspired the special issue we are featuring here. Encompassing a broad array of approaches, methodologies, and perspectives, the nine contributors to this issue each take on the relationship between cultural production and political resistance. . . .
