Writing Beyond the Veil: Sexuality and Space in Post-Colonia Muslim Feminist Literature
MetadataShow full item record
When the opportunity to write an Islamic history paper presented itself to me, I conducted research on the history of the veil and its relation to female sexuality, a paper that I turned to as I began thinking of a SIP topic. Although I lean towards the more creative side of literary expression, engaging in this critical SIP allowed me to combine my interest in creative writing, feminism and Islam in a critical framework. The events of September 11, and the convoluted anti-Muslim rhetoric I have witnessed since, also fueled my desire to actively engage in a project exposing the intricacies of Islam.
