ArteEast presents Fractured Web: Gazan Writing Online, a public program at Columbia University‚Äôs Center for Palestine Studies, in which Palestinian writers will discuss the increasing presence of literature online, and will explore the way contemporary writing has been shaped by the Internet. Each writer works in multiple platforms so that their literary voices encompass poetry, prose, and journalism.  In this discussion moderated by Khalid Hadeed (Cornell University) and featuring academic discussant Helga Tawil Soori (NYU); Somaya al Sousi and Fatena al Ghorra contextualize their work within the broader landscape of Palestinian literature online, while Adania Shibli (co-editor Narrating Gaza) discusses the way in which such platforms foster literary community and discourse.
