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.

Reading the Postcolonial Other in Contemporary Film, 2011 Northeast Modern Language Association, April 7-10, New Brunswick, NJ

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 6:04am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Over the last two decades, cinematic privileging of the postcolonial other has evolved a new, significant wedge against the plethora of hegemonic films. From Avatar to Slumdog Millionaire to The Secret of Roan Inish, the popular role of the postcolonial other in film has yielded a new transnational awareness as well as place in contemporary cinema. Additionally, these film depictions have alternately problematized and/or privileged themes of gender, migration, displacement and adaptation. This roundtable will examine through theoretical lenses how and why the postcolonial other has been positioned in privileged and colonized cultures by today's film industry.
