Upon the success of my first edited volume titled Arab women's Lives Retold: Exploring Identity through Writing (Syracuse University Press, 2007), which included a number of studies/analyses of autobiographical texts written by Arab women writers and women writers of Arab origin, I am working on a second edited volume on Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings.

Journal of Postcolonial Cultures and Societies (Guest Edited Cristina M. Gamez-Fernandez)

When names like V.S. Naipaul, Kiran Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Rohinton Mistry, Jhumpa Lahiri or Salman Rushdie are mentioned, one immediately associates them with authors of literary value, to protruding cultural and/or postcolonial stance and to India. In recent years literary criticism has paid much attention to authors of Indian origin: issues like identity, diaspora, nationalism, transnationalism and other key concepts have been the focus of much critical attention. However, none of these writers live in India, and some of them were not even born there.
