Algeria Cuts: Women and Representation, 1830 to the Present (Cultural Memory in the Present) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Algeria Cuts discusses the figure of woman, both under colonial rule in Algeria and within the postcolonial independent nation-state. It is an interdisciplinary project that spans fine art, film, colonial and legal policy, manifestos, prose fiction, and theoretical and philosophical texts concerning the relationship between France and Algeria. Khanna investigates gendered representation, identification, and justice, and in the process, calls into question the ways in which conventional disciplinary frameworks foreclose certain avenues of reflection while foregrounding others. Algeria Cuts seeks to understand Algeria and Algerian women as a philosophical site that facilitates an understanding of justice and the pursuit of feminism.

Synopsis:

Algeria Cuts discusses the figure of woman under colonial rule in Algeria as well as within the postcolonial independent nation-state through an interdisciplinary framework that spans fine art, film, colonial and legal policy, manifestoes, prose fiction, and theoretical and philosophical texts concerning the relationship between France and Algeria.
