CCAS Roundtable with Mohammad Alahmad

November 14, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Mohammad Alahmad will join us at our annual monthly roundtable (“Souk Al-Fikr”) series to discuss his research on Syrian poet Mohammad Omran. The roundtable will be held in Arabic. Students of the language, at any level, are certainly welcome.

هذا البحث يهدف إلى الكشف عن موقف الشاعر الحداثي السوري محمد عمران من القضايا السياسية والاجتماعية في سورية في النصف الثاني من القرن العشرين، بوصف شعره خطابا مضادا لخطاب السلطة، وأحيانا المجتمع، وبوصفه شعر ينحاز للجمال في المجتمع والسياسة في مواجهة كل الممارسات القبيحة في المجتمع والسياسة، تلك الممارسات التي تسلب الإنسان كرامته وحريته، وتسلب الوطن قدرته على التقدم والتطور والتحرر من التخلف والاستعمار والدكتاتورية، وكل ذلك من وجهة نظره ورؤيته للعالم التي تتجلى في شعره من خلال اللغة بمستوياتها المتعددة.

Our roundtables have proven a wonderful means for students to engage directly with the research and work of CCAS faculty and visiting scholars. Make sure you don’t miss out!
