Why Arabic E-Lit?

First, because the innovative literary forms, and incisive cultural and historical concerns, of Arabic literature are already transforming digital writing and taking it to the future.

Second, the electronic literature field needs to be shaken up and expanded. A first step is looking beyond the hegemony of the English language of Anglo-American cultural concerns.

Third, we declare a global and inclusive electronic literature, driven by the energy of Arabic E-Lit.

This site is a place for creators and critics, practitioners and students, to gather and discuss, share, and collaborate on the future of Arabic electronic literature.
