Orienting Muslims: Mapping Global Spheres of Affiliation and Affinity in Contemporary South Asian Fiction
Clements, Madeline 2013. Orienting Muslims: Mapping Global Spheres of Affiliation and Affinity in Contemporary South Asian Fiction. PhD Thesis University of East London School of Law and Social Sciences
This thesis asks how four South Asian Muslim novelists have responded to the challenge of writing about Islamic faith ties in the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York’s World Trade Centre and the ensuing “war on terror”. This is a period when Muslim writers and commentators have come under increasing pressure to “explain” Islamic affiliations and affinities, and – as Pnina Werbner (2002: 1) has put it – to ‘disclose where ... the centres of their subjective universe lie’.
