PUBLIC READING SESSION
Is there a poem that you feel reflects what culture “is” in Tunisia? Did you recently read an article that dissects the narrative of what it means to be “modern” and “Tunisian”? Maybe there is a dialogue transcript from your favorite pop culture TV show that reflects what it means to be Tunisian in the wake of an incipient democracy?
Or perhaps, you have written your own composition that you want to share with a public audience?! We welcome any genre of writing from archival documents to theatrical monologues and beyond!
Submissions can be written in Arabic, French, or in English. Once submitted, be sure to find out if your excerpt was selected by coming to the Public Reading Session to be held during the last day of our Summer School Symposium (Université D’Été) on AUGUST 31st at B7L9
To put forth your excerpt in the selection pool for a public reading session, write to us @ email@example.com.
Be sure that your excerpt does not exceed 1 page and that it includes the suitable citation (author’s name, title of work, publication year).
There is more than meets the eye... ⛰👀💙
🌿 This is Cirali in Antalya Riviera of Turkey🏖
Cirali, Turkey: Secret Seaside
Where is this beach? South-west Turkey, an hour's drive from Antalya
Who's it good for? Families, nature lovers (for the loggerhead turtles)
What is there to do? Watch the loggerhead turtles, enjoy the beach, walk to the Chimaera
What makes it special? Development is minimal, thanks to protection by the Turkish Forestry and Culture and Tourism ministries
Cradled between two pine-clad rocky spurs tumbling steeply down into the Mediterranean from the high mountains of the Lycian peninsula, the graceful arc of beach fronting the laid-back resort of Cirali is one of the most unspoilt in the Mediterranean. And it’s not just travel writers and the holidaying families drawn back to this unique spot year after year who think so. Just ask the endangered loggerhead turtles, sizeable numbers of which still swim ashore each summer to lay their eggs beneath the smooth, sun-warmed pebbles and coarse sand of this two mile long strand.
🏠 Where to stay: Villa Lukka Hotel⠀⠀⠀⠀
📍 Cirali, Antalya Turkey⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌴 Open for 12 months⠀⠀⠀⠀

Settling back into normal life🤘🏼but missing this breakfast & these views from @honeymoon_petra_villas in Santorini (and personally think Imerovigli is the spot to be vs Oia). One of the most amazing hotels I’ve stayed at in terms of hospitality and accommodations. Also, anyone into the pb + 🍌 + 🥓 combo? 🙋🏽♀️ #bytorib
You say Capri... and you think Faraglioni...
A wonderful view of this natural monument from the gardens of Augustus.
The "Faraglioni", symbol of Capri, are three imposing rocky peaks immersed in the blue waters of the island, and each has a name:
Faraglione of Terra (or Saetta) is the only one still connected to the mainland and the highest (109 mt.);
Faraglione of Mezzo (or Stella), 81 meters high, in the center has a natural tunnel 60 meters long that can be crossed by boat;
Faraglione of Fuori (or Scopolo), is the most external and 104 meters high, on it lives the very rare blue lizard.
The name "Faraglione" derives from the Greek "pharos" which means lighthouse, probably because in ancient times on the summit fires were used as signals for sailors.
The legend associates the "Faraglioni" with the boulders hurled by Polifemo, narred by Omero, while for Virgilio, in the Aeneid, they are the reign of the sirens that with their song fascinated the sailors.
