Book Launch: Min Fami: Arab feminist reflections on identity, space, and resistance
Wednesday, May 21, 2014
In partnership with Inanna Publications, Beit Zatoun is proud to celebrate the launch of Min Fami: Arab Feminist Reflections on Identity, Space, and Resistance in Toronto!
Min Fami is an anthology that cradles the thoughts of Arab feminists, articulated through personal critical narratives, academic essays, poetry, short stories, and visual art. It is a meeting space where discussions on home(land), exile, feminism, borders, gender and sexual identity, solidarity, language, creative resistance, and (de)colonization are shared, confronted, and subverted. In a world that has increasingly found monolithic and one-dimensional ways of representing Arab womyn, this anthology comes as an alternate space in which we connect on the basis of our shared identities, despite physical, theoretical, and metaphorical distances, to celebrate our multiple voices, honour our ancestry, and build community on our own terms, and in our own voices.
Book editors Ghadeer Malek and Ghaida Moussa along with contributors from the book will read and discuss issues covered in the book.
Snacks and Refreshment will be available!
Come out to enjoy of night of poetry, reading, and provocative discussions!
Attendance at this event is free
