Assia Djebar refigured the role of women in Algerian society before, during, and after the Algerian War for Independence, becoming one of
the pioneers of modern Maghrebian Francophone literature. In this literary discussion, led by French literature specialist Margarita
Smagina, participants are invited to discover some of the themes, motifs, and stylistic elements that characterize Djebar’s writing through
the lens of her 1959 short story “Il n’y a pas d’exil”. The text will be shared with the participants if needed.
This event is in French and is open to all. Recommended for French speakers at levels B1 and up.
