Travel Literature and its Role in Intercultural Communication and Dialogue for Peace

Travel Literature and its Role in Intercultural Communication and Dialogue for Peace | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it

Travel narratives mediate between fact and fiction, autobiography and ethnography, combining a number of academic disciplines, literary categories and social codes. They also raise issues concerning power and self- perception, cultural representation as well as imagination.

Travel literature is travel writing considered to have value as literature. Travel literature typically records the people, events, sights and feelings of an author who is touring a foreign place for the pleasure of travel. An individual work is sometimes called a travelogue or itinerary.

To be called literature the work must have a coherent narrative, or insights and value, beyond a mere logging of dates and events, such as diary or ship’s log. Literature that recounts adventure, exploration and conquest is often grouped under travel literature, but it also has its own genre outdoor literature; these genres will often overlap with no definite boundaries.

Un site internet des Frères musulmans affirme que le nouveau président égyptien est "secrètement" un Juif

Un site internet des Frères musulmans affirme que le nouveau président égyptien est "secrètement" un Juif | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it

IkhwanOnline, the official Web site of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, posted an article on Thursday asserting that the country’s new interim president, Adly Mansour, is secretly Jewish. The article, since taken offline, suggested that Mansour was part of an American and Israeli conspiracy to install Mohamed ElBaradei, a former U.N. official and  Egyptian opposition figure, as president.

Mansour, the supreme justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court, was sworn in as interim president on Thursday after the military announced that President Mohamed Morsi was no longer in charge. Morsi was a close ally of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has held large demonstrations protesting his ouster. That the Muslim Brotherhood would be suspicious of Mansour, and of the military that toppled Morsi to install him, is not surprising.

Morsi 'expects' Egypt elections in October

Morsi 'expects' Egypt elections in October | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it

Egyptian parliamentary elections could begin in October, six months later than originally planned, state news agency MENA has reported President Mohamed Morsi as saying.

Morsi said he expected the new parliament to convene before the end of the year, MENA reported on Wednesday.

The president had called a four-stage parliamentary election starting in late April but the plan was thwarted by a court ruling that overturned his decree calling the vote.

Egypt's main opposition bloc, the National Salvation Front, had already announced it would boycott the April vote - expressing doubts over its transparency - and demanded a new electoral law.

Under the original plan, the new parliament would have convened in early July. Morsi was addressing the Egyptian community in Doha, where he is attending an Arab summit.

Egypt's Islamist Groupies

There are few Egypt’s president can rely on more in these economic hard times than his band of Islamist brothers.

Key financial supporters from Islamist-led governments have come through with cash injections at times of extreme economic hardship, when Mohammed Morsi faced a spike in inflation and subsequent social unrest.

Egypt’s Islamist groupies, including Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Libya have all together offered the country $7 billion, partly to boost the Central Bank’s coffers, party to help with energy imports. (...)

In fact, propping up the budget this way only serves to artificially cushion the Muslim Brotherhood and allows them to delay an economic reform plan.  

Because after all, what’s the point of importing Libyan oil to feed an addiction to energy subsidies? Why support the Central Bank’s reserve pot when the country has struggled to put forward an economic plan that will safeguard future reserves?

This is why other countries have been wary of pouring money into Egypt, and in so doing, unfairly legitimising the Morsi administration at a time of political divisiveness.

Amnesty slams Morsy for failing to protect Copts

Amnesty slams Morsy for failing to protect Copts | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it

Amnesty International slammed the government on Wednesday for failing to protect Coptic Christians, the largest religious minority in the country.“Coptic Christians [in Egypt] must be protected from sectarian violence,” the international human rights body said in a statement.Amnesty said there had been a rise in tensions between religious communities in the town of Wasta in Beni Suef Governorate, about 100 km south of Cairo, in recent weeks.Tensions were sparked in February when a local Muslim woman was reported “missing” and members of her family and local Salafis blamed the Mar-Girgis Church, claiming they had convinced the woman to convert to Christianity, an allegation the church denies.People in the town went out on the streets calling for the return of the woman or for the Coptic Christian community to leave Wasta.During some of the protests, shouts of “Let the Christian die from fear,” “Today your sister, tomorrow your wife” and “She returns or [Coptic Christians] leave” were heard.Local residents told Amnesty that leaflets are being distributed in the market, on public transport and outside stores owned by Christians, highlighting Muslims’ religious duty to solve the mystery of woman’s alleged disappearance. Egypt independentMore : http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/amnesty-slams-morsy-failing-protect-copts?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Qatar Foreign Minister criticises Egyptian media

Qatar Foreign Minister criticises Egyptian media | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it

Qatari Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jassem Al-Thani said that a number of Egyptian media outlets received funds to pit the public against Qatar. He did not specify the source of these funds.

Al-Thani’s statements came in a joint press conference with the Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil Al-Araby on Tuesday at the end of the Arab summit in Doha, reported Anadolu Agency.

Al-Thani said he was surprised by media statements regarding Qatari support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, but that he trusted the intellectual abilities of the Egyptian people.

He explained that Qatar had offered $2bn in aid to Egypt during the rule of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces before President Mohamed Morsi came to power in June.

Edgar Allan Poe Was More Than a "Freak" and a "Drunk" - The New Republic

Edgar Allan Poe Was More Than a "Freak" and a "Drunk" - The New Republic | Les yeux ouverts | Scoop.it
Edgar Allan Poe Was More Than a "Freak" and a "Drunk"
The New Republic

 

"Poe's mentality was a rare synthesis," writes Mr. Padraic Colum. "He had elements in him that corresponded with the indefiniteness of music and the exactitude of mathematics." Is not this precisely what modern literature tends toward? Poe was the bridge over the middle nineteenth century from romanticism to symbolism; and symbolism, as M. Seylaz says, though scarcely any of its accredited exponents survive, now permeates literature. We must not, however, expect Poe to be admired, in his capacity of suspension across this chasm, on the part of American writers who do not know that either bank exists.
