Migration, Literature and Cultural Identity: The Case of Arab Emigrants to the United States in the Late Ninetenth and Early Twentieth Centuries

Authors : Badmus Murtada Adegboyega

Abstract: This study focuses on the way in which a group of Arab emigrants of Lebanese stock who were forced out of their homeland due to socio-political reasons, projected their Arab cultural identity in the foreign land. The Arabic literary culture was displayed in an excellent manner which resulted into the formation of Ar-Rabitah, in the United States. On the other hand, their counterparts in the North America also formed Al-Usbah. The influence of their literary endeavours touched the nooks and crannies of the Arab world the result of which gave birth to a modern literary school named al-Mahjar which is a product of cross-fertilization of American/European and Arab cultures and literatures.
