Edward Saïd, cultural critic and writer, was born in Jerusalem and grew up in Egypt and the US. "The themes of dissonance — of interwoven cultures, of feeling out of place, and of being far from home — so affected the boy Edward Saïd, that they continually arose in the academic, political, and intellectual works he produced as a man."
REPRESENTAÇÕES DO INTELECTUAL (2005) - AS CONFERÊNCIAS REITH DE 1993 Edward W. Said - Traduzido por Milton Hatoum O que é um intelectual? Qual a sua relação com a sociedade, a imprensa e as instituições? Até que ponto um intelectual pode ser independente? Nesse pequeno livro de reflexões, Edward Said, autor do clássico Orientalismo, tenta responder a essas questões com erudição e clareza. Milton Hatoum - Grupo Companhia das Letras
Permission to Narrate is the blog project of The Jerusalem Fund and its education program, the Palestine Center. The name derives from an oft quoted saying by the late Palestinian scholar Edward Said who remarked that Palestinians had been denied permission to narrate their history and speak of the day-to-day experiences of life in the margins. Their voices are so often absent from popular media.
