Call for Contributions for an Edited Volume: Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings

Post date: 17 May 2012
Deadline: 15 June 2012

Upon the success of my first edited volume titled Arab women’s Lives Retold: Exploring Identity through Writing (Syracuse University Press, 2007), I am working on a second edited volume on Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings. The first volume included studies on a number of texts by Arab women writers or women writers of Arab origin, such as Leila Ahmed’s A Border Passage: From Cairo to America; Assia Djebar’s L’Amour, La Fantasia; Raimonda Tawil’s My Home, My Prison; Leila Abouzeid's Return to childhood; Fatima Mernissi’s Dreams of Trespass; Queen Noor’s Leap of Faith; in addition to studies of autobiography in fiction and poetry, such as texts by Ahdaf Soueif, Mohja Kahf and Suheir Hammad.

If interested in contributing to the second volume book, kindly send a bio of 500 words and a proposal or an abstract of 500-800 words by June 15th, 2012 to Nawar Al-Hassan Golley: nhgolley@aus.edu Notification of acceptance will be sent by: July 15th, 2012.

Completed papers are due: Dec ember30th, 2012.
