Publishing and Festivals
Karam Youssef and Sherif Bakr are among the most committed publishers in the Arab World. During a workshop at Translation House Looren they taught future translators from the Arab World what it takes, beyond work on language, to bring a book from a German speaking world closer to an Arab audience.
Publishing issues, private and public, in Egypt and Arab countries, occupy a main part of cultural debates and other areas that are directly or indirectly linked to culture. Writers, publishers and editors form the three angles of a crucial triangle in such discussions that have recently attracted considerable attention.
