Queer Maghrebi French

Language, Temporalities, Transfiliations

Denis M. Provencher

Liverpool University Press

Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures LUP

  • Queer Maghrebi French offers a fresh critical framework for examining Muslim sexual minorities in relation to integration and immigration in France
  • Queer Maghrebi French charts new ground by moving beyond the discussion of the veil as the sine qua non of barometers measuring gender norms and "sexual democracy" (Fassin) in order to show how queer Maghrebi émigrés and queer Maghrebi French citizens find other ways to maneuver between their families of origin and the secular Republic as their adopted or native homeland
  • The book's queer and intersectional approaches will help scholars across fields to reimagine the paths to integration, immigration, and socially acceptable forms of "difference" in the diaspora beyond those that have been addressed at length in recent scholarship
