AGYA @ Abu Dhabi International Book Fair 2021

23 - 29 May 2021

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

AGYA takes part in the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair 2021 (ADIBF 2021). This year, Germany kicks off its two years as ‘guest of honor’. AGYA joins the German exhibition stand and is very much looking forward to present publications and events on topics such as storytelling, science communication, and food as cultural signifier. Selected new and recent publications from AGYA members and alumni/ae will represent AGYA’s diversity of interdisciplinary research to a larger audience.

At the ADIBF 2022 the Abu Dhabi publishing house Kalima will provide a first glance at the upcoming publication of the AGYA Tandem Project by Matthias Pasdzierny and Ikram Hili  ‛Brigitte Schiffer: Letters from Cairo. 1935-63’. AGYA members and Kalima are preparing a live streaming event with readings from the book. More information can be found here in due course. 

Alongside the book fair, the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation opens its doors for the exhibition ‘From Cinderella to Sindbad: German and Arab Timeless Tales’. Until 20 September, you can explore the rich shared cultural heritage of narrative traditions from ancient Egypt, the Arab world, and Germany.
