Writing Queer Identities in Morocco

Abdellah Taïa and Moroccan Committed Literature
  • By Tina Dransfeldt Christensen
$89.49
($115.00)
Product Description

This book explores queer identity in Morocco through the work of author and LGBT activist Abdellah Ta a, who defied the country's anti-homosexuality laws by publicly coming out in 2006. Engaging postcolonial, queer and literary theory, Tina Dransfeldt Christensen examines Ta a's art and activism in the context of the wider debates around sexuality in Morocco.

Placing key novels such as Salvation Army and Infidels in dialogue with Moroccan writers including Driss Chra bi and Abdelkebir Khatibi, she shows how Ta a draws upon a long tradition of politically committed art in Morocco to subvert traditional notions of heteronormativity. By giving space to silenced or otherwise marginalised voices, she shows how his writings offer a powerful critique of discourses of class, authenticity, culture and nationality in Morocco and North Africa.
