About this item

Scholars of Islamic literature and drama examine dominant and sometimes not-so-dominant visual cultures that have informed the way Islam is represented at both local and global levels through the inclusion of multiple realities, media, perspectives, discourses, and interpretations. They also explore the multiple realities of what it means to be Muslim. Their topics include the arrest of Diponegoro: visual orientalism and its alternative, nightmarish visions: shifting visual representations of the Islamic terrorist throughout the War on Terror, oil and women: invisibility as power in Nawal El-Saadawi's Love in the Kingdom of Oil, contemporary Bruneian cinema in the context of Sharia Law, and from women to Tehran: the shifting representation of the Islamic Republic of Iran on book covers by Iranian writers in English.
