How does the contemporary European political and cultural landscape intersect with Arabic writing?

Europe is home to several generations of Arab writers, many of whom write in the language of their European homes. How does the contemporary European political and cultural landscape intersect with the Arabic roots of these writers, and to what extent is a dual identity celebrated or even allowed in a polarising Europe?

Shubbak’s Artistic Director Eckhard Thiemann discusses all this and more with Moroccan-Dutch poet Mustafa Stitou, Algerian-French writer and director Faïza Guène and British-Sudanese writer Leila Aboulela.
