     Transnational discourse on Islam and gender has been a highly contested area of debate.  Lila Abu-Lughod criticizes the notion of the existence of a “Muslim woman” because it is necessary to first define women’s historical , economic, and social status before making any statement applying to them.  Our panel follows Abu-Lughod in an effort to combat essentializing.  While Abu-Lughod primarily analyzes sociological accounts, our panel will investigate literary archetypes, images, and stereotypes of Muslim women, both from texts originating within the Muslim world, and from texts whose authors come to Islam as outsiders.   We will focus on how cultural and religious identity is constructed in these memoirs, novels, short stories and poems.
