The Arab feminist Gothics – from 1001 Nights to Nawal El Saadawi

About this event

Romancing the Gothic runs on donations so if you can, please support our speakers.

 

In this talk I would sketch how contemporary Arab feminist writers draw on literary histories such as the 1001 Nights and local folklore to write in a localised version of feminist Gothic tropes, from the haunted house, qarina spirit doubles, madness, and ghosts in order to explore feminist sensibilities in places like Lebanon and Egypt.
