Words without Borders announces a new blog series: “Cross-Cultural Dialogues in the Middle East”
 
New York City, New York, August 10, 2010Words without Borders (WWB) magazine announces the launch of a blog series discussing the literary, political, and cultural intersections of Israelis and Palestinians.
 
WWB’s new series will spotlight a region that is much discussed, but often simplistically covered in the media." This series hopes to gain a broader perspective on the various ways in which contemporary Israeli and Palestinian cultures negotiate the region’s complex and hybrid social landscape.â�¨
The series blog editors, Chana M. and Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi, stated, “We hope that the series will illuminate the dynamic multicultural conversations going on in the literary and cultural scenes in Israel and Palestine today, conversations that are overlooked by the mainstream media's often superficial portrayal of the region's politics.”
 
The series, and more information, can be found at: http://wordswithoutborders.org/dispatches/article/new-blog-series-cross-cultural-dialogues-in-the-middle-east/
