We are presenting a special session at MESA 2010 in San Diego " Emerging female frontiers and entrenched socio-political boundaries in the Gulf States".
The rapidly shifting commercial and social policies relating to development, education and cultural identity have been impacted by transnational processes such IT and transportation changes contributing to the new "café society". Regionally and culturally specific delineations such as ; literary cafes, art cafes and informal public gender frontiers that cross those lines held up by neo-patriarchal structures enforcing gender segregation are continuing to evolve. They are one way to avoid the unbreakable rules set by the political systems that are based on historic patriarchal tribal traditions.

Increased immigration to Italy in the last decades has brought with it both demographic and cultural change. Immigrant communities are reshaping the social landscape of the peninsula and introducing new traditions that challenge the notion of a homogeneous Italian culture. This session aims to look at the growing Muslim community in particular, and the ways in which literature, film, theater and media perceive Islam and the Islamic world in Italy. Please send 250 word abstracts and short bios to Johanna Rossi Wagner at jrwagner@rutgers.edu.
