Annotation

An anthology that aims to smash the stereotypes of Arabs in Australia that too often proliferate in mainstream media.

Publisher Description

Although there are 22 separate Arab nationalities representing a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences, the perception of Arabs in Australia has largely ranged from a homogenizing one (at best), to one that plays on pop-culture caricatures of a deviant, hyper-masculine, uncivilized, savage Arab.

Edited by award-winning author and academic Randa Abdel-Fattah and activist and poet Sara Saleh, this collection explores growing up as a member of the Arab diaspora in Australia and includes stories of family, this country, times past, grief, belonging, identity, confusion and isolation.

Author Biography

Randa is a postdoctoral Research Fellow at Macquarie University, researching the impact of the generational war on terror on Muslim and non-Muslim youth born into a post 9/11 world. Randa has written eleven books, is working on the film adaptation of her novel Does My Head Look Big in This? and is keen to use her intervention into popular culture to reshape dominant narratives around race.

Sara Saleh is a poet and activist. A campaigner for refugee rights and racial justice, she has spent the past decade working with Amnesty International and CARE International in Australia and the Middle East. She is currently completing her Juris Doctor, developing her debut novel and is a proud Bankstown Poetry Slam 'Slambassador'.
