Arab immigrant literature can be interpreted in light of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s theory of minor literature, but that theory must be supplemented by postcolonial and translation theory so as to account for the role that Orientalism plays in shaping the conditions of reception and the discourse of Arab-American and Arab-British writers.

Keywords: minority theory; orientalism; cultural translation; race and immigration policy
