Access to James Sanua’s journal publications and his extensive oeuvre has hitherto been difficult. The journalistic and artistic material of the Paris-exiled egyptian nationalist has therefore hardly received the degree of scholarly attention it actually deserves. Yet, during the research-work for her Ph.D. dissertation “The Construction of a National-Self through the Definition of its Enemy in James Sanua’s Early Satirical Writings” Eliane Ursula Ettmueller was able to collect James Sanua’s complete works and –even more importantly– the majority of the originals of his magazines. Mrs Eva Milhaud kindly gave her permission to have Sanua’s legacy digitized and to make it available to interested readers and researchers all over the world.

The project produced a website of James Sanua’s complete works and derived from Project B1 “Gauging Cultural Asymmetries: Asian Satire and the Search for Identity in the Era of Colonialism and Imperialism” at the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” of Heidelberg University from which it received its major funding. It was realized in a collaborative endeavor with the Visual Resources Team of the Cluster’s Heidelberg Research Architecture.
