Masculinities in Middle Eastern and North African Literature and Film (April 1, 2005; collection)
In light of the recent dramatic growth of masculinity studies across all disciplines, I am soliciting articles for a book collection devoted to masculinities in the literature and film of the Middle East and North Africa.
Possible topics include: cultural representations of manhood and the male body; sexual practices and sexual identities; virility or infertility; race, ethnicity, class--and masculinities; fatherhood and male identity; male-female relationships; relationships between patriarchy and dominant masculinities; relationships between concepts of masculinity and nationalism; colonialism, westernization, and local responses to "modernity"; fatherhood and its essence in the cinematic city; women and the masculine gaze of the city; the city as an "ordering gaze"; cityscape and the distribution of sexuality, sex and the cinematic city; and the calibration of the cinematic gaze of the postcolonial city.
If you are interested, please email me (e-mail address provided below) an abstract (about 200 words) and a CV by April 1, 2005. Queries welcome.
Essays should be between 6000 and 8000 words and are due August 1, 2005. E-mail submissions are welcome.
