at the American University
Georges Khoury (Jad) talks about the history of comics in
THE ARABIC WORLD
Jad has accurate information, but i do not share his point of view when he says:
"works by arabic authors done in a foreign language cannot be counted as arabic comics"
(in french): "i think that the "arabity" of a person - and more likely of a work of art - has nothing to do with language."
to: Edward Saïd, and Samir Kassir, and Georges Chehadé, and all the others...
i could say "to Gibran Khalil Gibran" but i do not like him a lot...
