My write up of Queens College's Symposium Celebrating the Literature of the Middle East is on M. Lynx-Qualey's Arabic Literature (in English).  
Among presenters at this event were Sinan Antoon, Elias Khoury, Ammiel Alacalay, Aron Aji, Murat Nemet-Nejat, and so many others.  Each panel left off in middle of conversation, it seemed, as there was so much to be said on each topic.  Panels included: "The Politics of Translation," "The Writer as Translator," and Elias Khoury's final address: "A Writer's Journey."
