While the teaching of language remains the primary goal of many programs of world languages, instructors are increasingly offering courses of literature in English translation to enable students to develop literary and cultural competencies and to promote cross-cultural understanding. In most Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies programs, Arabic Literature in English Translation courses vary in their focus and purpose.

This panel aims to address the following questions:
- What criteria dictate the selection of the texts in terms of their genres, content, and historical periods?
- What factors determine the learning outcomes, learning activities, and assessment methods associated with these courses?
- What strategies instructors use in order to manage mediation and transfer in texts originally written in Arabic?
- How do instructors address intercultural competence issues?
