Mallette examines Orientalist philology in southern Europe produced between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth century. Focusing on Italy, Spain, and Malta, she conducts close comparative readings of a wide range of philological narratives to reveal the influences Arab and Islamic traditions have had on the development of modern European culture.
