Revisionary Narratives

Moroccan Women's Auto/Biographical and Testimonial Acts

Naïma Hachad

Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures LUP

  • Marks auto/biography and testimony as a specific field of inquiry within the study of women's postcolonial cultural productions while broadening our understanding of gender and women's issues in North Africa and the Middle East.
  • Redefines the meaning and scope of the interconnection of auto/biography and testimony, especially in relation to how women recycle reality to rework dominant sociopolitical structures and discourses
  • Presents original research that attends to a number of under-researched material and under-theorized aspects of women's works in testimonial literature, documentary theater, photography, embroidery, body tattoo, and digital media
  • Explores new perspectives that participate in the ongoing reconfiguration of Maghrebi studies highlighting the impact of translocal and transglobal circulations, exchanges, and transfers of people, goods, ideas, and practices that have shaped and continue to influence Moroccan identity and culture
  • The book's interdisciplinary approaches address Morocco's linguistic and cultural polyphony beyond the strictures of linguistic, disciplinary, and academic categories such as Francophonie and Arabic Studies, thus establishing new modes of inquiry and comparative frameworks
