[UPDATE] Between Vulnerability and Resilience: Representations of Veil in Literature, Film, and Fine Arts

The veil's ancient and modern history and its resurgence in our time is an important subject for discussion for those of us posing new questions about women and Islam in literature, film, and fine arts. In Europe and the U.S., the veil is often presented through errors of conceptualizations. The media, in particular, seems to be obsessed with the role of the veil. Recurrently, these discussions run along essentialist and ahistorical lines associating Islam with the ideology of shame and honor. Moreover, the Muslim immigrant "problem" in Europe and the U.S. and the fear of Islam and Muslims in connection with terrorism has heightened the controversy on the issue of the veil.

'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)

The recent refugee crisis in Europe has brought to the fore the pressing aspects of the precarious nature of human life. This is not a sudden crisis as scholars have traced its historical roots with the exploits of "Western" capitalism, imperialism, environment, and war on terror. Such engagement has also given us different politico-philosophical points of analysis of the condition: for instance, the rise of terms such as "precariat," "new subaltern," "precarity" (Guy Standing; Simon During), the debates on "Anthropocene" and "capitalocene" (Dipesh Chakraborty; Jason W Moore), or the interest in neuro-biological or communal human affects (Catherine Malabou; Judith Butler). Added to such is the challenge of the machines and objects in our daily life.
