Connecting cultures

Development grant

In the context of a development grant granted to me by the Expertisecentrum Literair vertalen, I am currently working on the translation of an Egyptian graphic novel. Thanks to this development grant, the translation project is mentored by an experienced translator, Gert Borg.

The graphic novel, titled Shubeik Lubeik, was written by the Egyptian comics artist Deena Mohamed. In Shubeik Lubeik she evokes a slightly dystopian Cairene society in which wishes have become a simple commodity.
