In Memoriam. Salma Jayyusi | في ذكرى سلمى الجيوسي

Salma Khadra Jayyusi—سلمى الخضراء الجيوسي— (1927-2023) was a pioneering Palestinian poet, writer, translator, and literary scholar. She trained generations of academics and translators and was the founder and director of Project of Translation from Arabic (PROTA), which translated dozens of books in Arabic to English.

Dima Ayoub, a brilliant scholar in her own right, will give a presentation about Salma’s life, in conversation with Huda Fakhreddine about the lasting impact that Jayyusi had on the field of Arabic literature and scholarship in the world.
