Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings, Edited Volume
Upon the success of my first edited volume titled Arab womenís Lives Retold:
Exploring Identity through Writing (Syracuse University Press, 2007), which
included a number of studies/analyses of autobiographical texts written by
Arab women writers and women writers of Arab origin, I am working on a
second edited volume on Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings.
The first volume (2007) included studies of a number of texts by Arab women
writers or women writers of Arab origin, such as Leila Ahmedís A Border
Passage: From Cairo to America; Assia Djebarís LíAmour, La Fantasia;
Raimonda Tawilís My Home, My Prison; Leila Abouzeid's Return to childhood;
Fatima Mernissiís Dreams of Trespass; Queen Noorís Leap of Faith; in
addition to studies of autobiography in fiction and poetry, such as texts by
Ahdaf Soueif, Mohja Kahf and Suheir Hammad.
If you are interested in writing a chapter for this volume in which you
analyze a text, or more (not included in the first volume), written by an
Arab woman or a woman of an Arab origin, please send a bio of 500 words and
a proposal or an abstract of 500-800 words (and a title) by June 30th, 2012
to: Nawar Al-Hassan Golley: firstname.lastname@example.org
Notification of acceptance will be sent by: July 31th, 2012.
Completed papers are due: December 30th, 2012.
For more information, please feel free to contact me.
