Professor Alessandra Ciucci Contributes Chapter to Interdisciplinary Collection "Black Med"

Professor Alessandra Ciucci has contributed a chapter to a new interdisciplinary collection on the Black Mediterranean: Black Med, edited by the artistic duo Invernomuto and published by Humboldtbooks. The chapter ("An Elegy for the Crossing: Nass El Ghiwane's "Səmṭa") discusses the opening section of a celebrated song by the Moroccan group Nass El Ghiwane in the context of an elegiac genre which has been part of the Arab literary tradition since the pre-Islamic era.

Congratulations, Alessandra!
