Update: Re-Positioning and Re-Constructing Muslim Women's Identity-ACLA 2013, Toronto, April 4-7

Monday, October 22, 2012 - 5:23pm
American Comparative Literature Association

Muslim women have been the subject of interrogation and questioning both in the Muslim world and in the non-Muslim world. A relentless questioning of their 'role,' 'subjectivity,' and 'identity' has been fair game for both intellectual and popular debate. This debate has become more pronounced in the aftermath of 9/11, break-up of the Russian block, migration of Muslims (refugees and others) from their native countries, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and after the Arab Spring. The 'face' of the Muslim woman stares back at the onlooker from the covers of magazines, from Orientalized and romanticized visions to that of women suppressed by patriarchy and illiteracy.
