CFP: Edited Collection-Unveiling Fashion: Gender, Islam, and Global Modernities - Nida Sajid, Dept. of African, Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Literatures(AMESALL)and Ellorashree Maitra, Dept. of English, Rutgers, State University of New Jersey
This collection of interdisciplinary essays will trace the historical trajectory of the production, circulation, and consumption of Muslim femininity and fashion from early modernity to the era of transnational globalization. The essays will collectively work through the politics of zenana (feminine)fashion, to unravel how dress and appearance have historically constituted complex, embodied performances of Muslim feminine identity and community in the global arena. Our goal is to investigate the aesthetic and political impact of discourses of modernity in the fashioning of Muslim women’s bodies, dress,and lives in multiple geographical sites from the early modern period through the post-9/11 era. We are especially interested in essays that theorize fashion in new, innovative ways so as to complicate traditional accounts of the harem, seraglio, and zenana as secluded spaces harboring communities frozen in time. We welcome scholarly contributions from a broad spectrum of disciplines (such as literature, film, history, religion, anthropology, gender studies, and art history, etc.) and addressing topics including (but not limited to):
- Censorship and Iranian Cinema
- Bollywood Aesthetics
- Performance Traditions in Islamic Cultures
- Theatre and Empire
- Memoirs, Letters, and Autobiographies
- Orientalism and Travel Writings
- Graphic Novels and Comics
- Art and Visual Culture
- Architectural Spaces and Everyday Life
- Representations of Harems and Seraglios
- Weddings and other Ritual Ceremonies
- The Glamour Industry and Consumer Capitalism
- Cross Dressing and Border Crossings
- Power Dressing and Politics
- Veils and Headscarves in Public Discourse
- Citizenship and Civil Society
- Identity and Faith in Islamic Diaspora
