Assia Djebar’s Poetics of the Trace
Assia Djebar's contribution to the assessment of Algeria as a multilingual space. Djebar's "writing for the trace" inscribes a dual resistance to colonial appropriations, but also to claims of authentic self-recovery after independence. Focusing on scenes of vanishing inscriptions or writing under erasure, Djebar presents an Algerian site that is produced poetically or in fragments.
