Francophone Lebanese novelist Alexandre Najjar recently interviewed Boston College Professor Franck Salameh about his biography of writer and businessman Charles Corm, an influential figure in the nationalism movement that led to Lebanon’s independence. The interview was published in the Middle East’s leading francophone literary journal, L’Orient Littéraire, and explores the driving force behind Salameh’s interest in the works and life of Corm. Salameh is an associate professor of Near Eastern Studies in BC’s Department of Slavic and Eastern Languages and Literatures and the Senior Editor in Chief of The Levantine Review. For more about Salameh’s book Charles Corm: An Intellectual Biography of a Twentieth-Century Lebanese “Young Phoenician,” see this BC Bookmarks post from 2015.
