We are launching a new blog under the Arabist umbrella. This is something we've been thinking of for some time and let's just say that it's going to be my summer project. Please check out The Arabist Review, which will be dedicated to covering arts and culture in Cairo and (hopefully) the Arab region. We don't have a link on the main page yet, but it's coming.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
The Arabist is a labor of love. We don't make much from ads, so please contribute to keep us going.
