This article delineates the actual role played by Mayy Ziyādah, not only as a salonnière, but also as an intellectual in her own right with a significant role in the Nahah in twentieth-century Egypt. As her name is most often associated with the salon, I will demonstrate the intellectual climate of that salon, its capacity to bring together different factions and to emerge thereby as a microcosm of the Nahah, in its complexity and hybrid nature. With these goals in mind, I will draw on an extensive amount of material, supported by a theoretical framework that helps in envisioning the salon as a public sphere.
