The Transcontinental Maghreb

(p.1) Introduction
The Transcontinental Maghreb

Edwige Tamalet Talbayev

Fordham University Press

The introduction offers a broad introduction to the project. It delineates the stakes of the argument and situates it at the fertile intersection of Francophone literature and Mediterranean studies. By establishing the historical and critical context of its Mediterranean approach, it draws out its implications in relation to existing critical frameworks, such as deterritorialization, minor transnationalism, and dominant regional models in Mediterranean studies. It presents the Mediterranean Maghrebi corpus under study—a body of texts rooted in Kateb Yacine’s Nedjma rather than Albert Camus’ colonial Mediterranean writings. The introduction shows how the book’s Mediterranean framework is used to reclaim and preserve the diversity of Maghrebi societies in a melancholic mode.
