Whether exiled or immigrating to a new land, whether first or second
generation, an individual psychologically intertwines the home of origin
and the present home in a variety of ways that impact his/her identity.

process and look forward to receiving your submission.

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: Postcolonial Food (4/30/04; journal issue)

Thursday, April 8, 2004 - 6:51am

Postcolonial Studies Journal: Special Issue: "Postcolonial Food"

Postcolonial Studies is calling for contributions on the topic
of 'Postcolonial Food'. An early reviewer of Claudia Roden's 1968 A Book of
Middle Eastern Food, described the text as 'a work of cultural anthropology'.
The quote is a little misleading: for Roden not only describes a set of
foreign culinary practices, she gives recipes for their recreation. Imagine of
Postcolonial Studies saw that as its mission. We have devoted a great deal of
time to the critique of representation, but rather less to the possibility of
intercultural communication, not to mention learning.
