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.
