The scene is set as Khadijah Hussein, a westernized, fashionable, Malaysian fashion model and the mother of two turns up at her local Mosque dressed in a Burqa complete with a veil. She is unable to communicate except to utter Muslim prayers. Khadijah's frantic husband contacts her Singapore alumni group including psychiatrist, Dr. Linda Belgrove, who diagnoses Khadijah as having suffered 'Identity Fracture, the worst case she have ever seen.' Members of Khadijah's alumni group decide to take her on a voyage of rediscovery to well known healing sites in Asia, Europe and America to restore Khadijah's identity and allow her to return to her children and husband. The result is a tongue-in-cheek look at Identity issues in Muslim Malaysia following the invasion of Iraq. Culture-clash, thousands of years old religious traditions, and the meaning of life are all examined in this fast-paced Humor Novel set in Malaysia, Singapore, Hawaii, France, Arizona, and the former North Borneo.

Poetry. African American Studies. The haunting, haunted world revealed in Khadijah Queen's FEARFUL BELOVED stays with the reader in an uncomfortably pleasurable way, and heightens awareness of our own world's deep horrors and ordinary brilliance. Anyone who has been unable to shake the erotic brutality of, say, Sylvia Plath's Ariel will savor the 'bruisable monuments' that Queen offers. Here Queen crafts a language that unfolds along multiple axes (spatial, temporal, emotional, spiritual) and is experimental with form while remaining seamless, precise, and vivid as 'The song she sang as a little girl feeding ants.' Addressing Fear head- on—'your spectrality exists,' she insists—Queen's FEARFUL BELOVED evidences the fierce intelligence of 'a body in its own time, possessed of itself.'

Connecting fan commentary with analysis by television scholars, this book explores the development of these series from the 1980s on, with a focus on the role of fan cultures in "reproducing" these popular American shows.

Feminist Auteurs examines a rich and diverse body of work that has received insufficient attention both in film studies and in feminist theory on film. Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film.

Fiction. Young Adult Fiction. Poetry. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. Hybrid Genre. Part 1980s and 1990s nostalgia, part exuberant storytelling, I'M SO FINE: A LIST OF FAMOUS MEN & WHAT I HAD ON turns a sharply humorous magnifying glass onto gendered interactions in daily life, framed primarily by random celebrity encounters in Los Angeles. Far from a narrative of fame-chasing or conceit, however, I'M SO FINE breathlessly addresses what it means for a woman to fight for dignity and survival in an often hostile environment, to come into her own power as she decides what she wants for herself "& mostly gets its every fineness." "I'M SO FINE is an accumulation that is the feminine memory that has had enough. This book is strength, is a critique, is subversive, is a woman, a fist, an lol, an F.U., a refusal, a gaze back at the gaze, is inevitable freedom wearing a flowered dress Kente cloth bomber jacket red lipstick white jeans a velvet choker white platform sandals a black turtleneck electric blue column dress an eggshell blouse with a high collar & pearl buttons is wearing a powerful woman's body and mind."--Natalie Diaz

This volume brings together contributions that explore the increasingly important roles that English plays in Asia, including its contribution to economic growth, national imaginaries and creative writing. These are issues that are political in a broad sense, but the diversity of Asian contexts also means that the social, political and cultural ramifications of the spread of English into Asia will have to be understood in relation to the challenges facing specific societies. The chapters in the book collectively illustrate this diversity by focusing on countries from South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific. Each country has two contributions devoted to it: one paper provides an overview of the country s language policy and its positioning of English, and another provides a critical discussion of creative expressions involving the use of English. Taken together, the papers in the volume detail the most recent developments concerning the politics of English in Asia."
