Banipal launches digital archive

Margaret Obank: "This exciting collaboration with Exact Editions will help further Banipal’s role as a vehicle for intercultural exchange."

As of now, individual readers as well as leading institutions such as universities, government departments, colleges and libraries are able to instantly access the complete digital archive, dating back to 1998, via the app or online. This allows subscribers to browse all 57 past issues as well as every newly released issue on their preferred device, with IP authentication allowing them access both on and off site, says Exact Editions.

Subscribers can search for a term, particular author or translator across a specific issue, year, decade or the whole archive, and then also to bookmark the relevant pages.

The launch of this wide-ranging archive gives readers with a passion for writing from the Arab world the opportunity to read and engage with a variety of contemporary poetry and prose in English translation as well as interviews with established and emerging authors, publishers and translators, book reviews and photo-reports of literary events. In addition, the archive offers access to each issue’s featured guest writer on non-Arab literature as part of the magazine’s sustained effort to promote intercultural dialogues and interaction.

Margaret Obank, Publisher and Editor-at-large at Banipal said about the digital launch: “This exciting collaboration with Exact Editions will help further Banipal’s role as a vehicle for intercultural exchange that opens a window for Western audiences on the realities of Arab culture in all its diversity and vibrancy, allowing Arab literature to take its rightful place in the canon of world literature.”

Exact Editions’ Managing Director, Daryl Rayner, said: “We are thrilled to work with Banipal to make such a rich resource available to individuals and institutions worldwide. The magazine looks fantastic online as well as on the app and will certainly be an invaluable resource to lovers of world literature!”
