Reanimate, An Intersectional Feminist Digital Publishing Collective—Carol Stabile Reanimate emerged from conversations between co-directors Roopika Risam and Carol Stabile about making archival materials that Carol used while writing her latest monograph available for her readers.

Using Edward Said’s notion of the contrapuntal, I discuss how digital modes of analysis facilitate a concurrent process of close and distant readings of paratexts in Arabic-to-English translations. Digital analysis brings to the surface power dynamics—in terms of gender, colonialism,…
