Edited Book on Recent Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings in English
Call for contribution

    My book Reading Arab Women's Autobiographies. Shahrazad Tells Her
Story was published last November (2003) by Texas University Press.
The book fills a gap in the field. Texas University Press expressed
interest in another book in the same area.
    In the book, I looked at autobiographical, fictional
autobiographical and anthologies of interviews with women. I read texts
by Huda Shaarawi, Nawal El-Saadawi, Fadwa Tuqan, Bouthaina Shaaban,
Fatima Mernissi, and Nayra Atiya. The book also examined the
sociopolitical background of the texts as well as the tradition of
narrative theory.

CFP: Essay Collection

Race, Education, Identity:
Narratives of African American Education

We invite submissions for an forthcoming published collection of essays
exploring the complex relationship between African Americans and education in
the United States. In light of recent legal developments concerning
Affirmative Action, we seek to develop a genealogy of narratives exploring the
myriad ways education has impacted the formation of black identities (both
from within and without black communities) and the ways African Americans have
shaped—and continue to shape—national narratives of education.
