Intimate Selving in Arab Families: Gender, Self, and Identity
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis collection of articles written by native feminist scholars focuses on intimate Arab familial relationships. The authors identify key family relationships -- mother-son, brother-sister, mother-daughter-granddaughter, co-wives, and father-daughter -- to explore them in terms of shaping and defining gender in relation to others.This book, which for the first time brings into the Arab community the scholarly discussion of gendering of the self -- the process of intimate selving -- is divided into three parts: biographical and autobiographical, ethnographic, and literary accounts. Although studies of these relationships have received considerable attention in Europe, the United States, and parts of Asia, it has not been addressed until now in the Arab world.
