dock-ument promotes theoretical discourse on topics related to various aspects of the Levant through the publication of personal essays, lyrical prose, poetry, and other expressive texts.

The name, dockument, expresses the connection between text and context, between the pier, the home dock, and the ship of thoughts and reflections that will sail, we hope, to various interesting places.

Wael Abu-‘Uksa and Yonatan Mendel
