The Women of the Midan : the female body as a site that shaped the revolutions in the Arab world from 2011 to this day

12.02.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

Association for Middle East Women’s Studies is co-sponsoring a book talk with Brown’s Center for Middle East Studies featuring AMEWS Book Award Honorable Mention Winner Sherine Hafez on March 5 at 12 pm EST: The Women of the Midan foregrounds the female body as a site for the events that shaped the revolutions in the Arab world from 2011 to this day and illuminates how marked/gendered bodies intervene within exclusive spaces to reassemble the complex weave of public space, state and government control, masculine politics, religious ideology, and cultural and social norms.

These forces in turn constitute the body, shaping individuals, their sense of self, their subjectivities, and their political dispositions. This book captures the mutually productive, fluid processes that characterize the body and the forces that act upon it to understand how gendered human subjectivity is shaped in a revolutionary context. It sheds light on the individual’s relationship to the state in the Arab world today and how practices of citizenship evolve in the region. Register here:
