In Emails from Scheherazad, Mohja Kahf writes back to post-9/11 neo-Orientalist epistemologies, informing Western discourses on Muslim, especially veiled, women: “Yes, I speak English/Yes, I carry explosives/They’re called words/And if you don’t get up/Off your assumptions/They’re going to blow you away” (35). Similarly, other writers, such as Leila Aboulela, Ahdaf Soueif, Hanan al-Shaykh and Tahmina Anam, work towards decolonizing Muslim women’s bodies, whilst stressing piety as a lived experience. Still others, among them Randa Abdel-Fattah, Shelina Janmohamed, G. Willow Wilson and Umm Juwayriyah, are turning to and ‘Islamizing’ youth culture genres like young adult fiction, romance, fantasy and urban fiction.

College Literature Special Issue: “Lively Words: The Politics and Poetics of Experimental Writing,” edited by Tyler Bradway.

updated: 
Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 10:42am
College Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

The title of this special issue draws inspiration from Gertrude Stein’s “lively words,” a style of experimental writing that has been influential for many queer and feminist experimental writers. The essays in this special issue will reconsider the “liveliness” of experimental writing in the twentieth and twenty-first century—not only how experimental poetics disrupt codified practices of reading, but also how experimental writers conceive of the relationship between their words and the social world more broadly.
