Arab Science Fiction & Fantasy

A session at Sindbad Sci-Fi presents: the World at World Con - Arab SF/F

Sunday 17th August, 2014

3:00pm to 4:30pm (GMT)

Fantastical storytelling in Arabic doesn’t begin with and end with The Thousand and One Nights; in fact there is a long history of speculative fiction in Arabic, stretching all the way back to medieval intellectuals like al-Farabi and Ibn al-Nafis. This panel will explore the past, present and future of Arab and Arabic Science Fiction Narratives, incluyding authors writing in Arabic- such as Ahmed Khalid Towfik and Noura al-Nouman – and the work of members of the Arab diaspora, such as Amal El-Mohtar and Saladin Ahmed.

VENUE: Capital Suite 8+11, Level 3

This session is part of #LonCon3 - the 72nd World Science Fiction convention
