The Corpse Exhibition: Iraqi Literature after 2003

to Sep 29

The Corpse Exhibition: Iraqi Literature after 2003

The American occupation of Iraq produced a boom in dystopian novels and short stories. Trauma from two preceding wars, sanctions, and draconian censorship by the Ba’athist regime flood these works. This symposium brings together writers and scholars to discuss the role of cultural production in reflecting upon the symposium in Iraq after the 2003 US invasion.

Please join us (September 28-9, 2017) for a unique opportunity to take part in The Corpse Exhibition: Iraqi Literature after 2003 at Duke University. A film screening of Ahlaam will be shown in East Duke 209 at 7:00 PM on September 28th. The following day, we will meet in East Duke - Pink Parlor for talks & panel discussion.
