Conrad and the Orient

Edited by Amar Acheraiou and Nursel Icoz


The Eastern and Western Perspectives series devotes a volume to _Joseph

interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

Subjects include (but are not limited to):


- Representation of the Orientals (the Arabs, Chinese, Malays.) and Conrad's
relation to the discourse of Barbarism

- Eastern and Western encounters (through colonization, commerce, marriage.)
and the impossible (?) dialogue

- Eastern religions and philosophies

- Gender relations

- History and stories of the Orient

- Eastern landscapes / seascapes and their aestheticization

- The Orient between insularity and globalization

- Geographies and mental cartographies

- Culture, race, and identity

- Conrad's experience of the Orient

- Reception of Conrad's works by Oriental readership
