The Lebanese writer Joumana Haddad opens this session that is held within the framework of the Biennial of Thought ‘Open City’ in Barcelona, ​​with which the IEMed participates by organizing different activities.

From narrative fiction to poetry, to later delve into the theatrical genre, journalistic reporting and essays, up to a documentary film script, such is the versatility of her artistic production. Feminist and fierce critic of sexism in Lebanese society, she founded ‘Jasad’ (Body), a magazine of culture, art, literature and «body science, in its erotic, social, aesthetic, unsightly, anthropological, linguistic dimension», of which she is editor-in-chief. In addition, she was responsible for the cultural pages of the Lebanese newspaper ‘An Nahar’. She is also the author of poetry and essay books (‘Yo maté a Sherezade’, Editorial Debate, 2011), and was part of Beirut39, a transnational project that brings together the best Arab writers under 39 years of age.
