  • Challenging Islamophobia through Intermediality: Anida Yoeu Ali’s
           Performance Art

    • Authors: Martina Pfeiler
      Abstract: This article investigates Anida Yoeu Ali’s performance art as that of a Muslim, Khmer-American feminist global agitator, who challenges Islamophobia in the United States and transnationally by expanding her work “into ever-widening arenas” (Fraser, Justice Interruptus 82). Her performance projects formulate oppositional interpretations of Muslim “identities, interests, and needs” (Fraser, Justice Interruptus 82) in an increasingly Islamophobic era from the aftermath of 9/11 to Donald Trump’s presidency. Drawing on theories of convergence culture and intermediality, this article provides a close analysis of Ali’s performance projects. The first work is titled 1700% Project: Mistaken for Muslim (2010), a performance poetry clip that was directed by the Japanese American filmmaker Masahiro Sugano in 2010 and which widely circulates on the Internet. It stands out as a feminist, transnational critique of an unprecedented “undermining [of] Muslim voices” (Azam 125). The article also inclu...

  • Media Agoras: Islamophobia and Inter/Multimedial Dissensus. Introduction

    • Authors: Elena Furlanetto, Frank Mehring
      Abstract: Agora, n.: A public open space where people can assemble, esp. a marketplace, originally in the ancient Greek world; the structures enclosing such a space.
      Oxford English Dictionary During the last years, different forms of Islamophobia have become common and continue to infiltrate law, politics, and culture. Although the term has moved, as Khaled A. Beydoun rightly points out, from the academic discussions into the realms of social media platforms and headline news of national newspapers (189), Islamophobia continues to be a slippery term, sometimes employed without clear definitions, in ways that are too generic or reductive, or altogether avoided (Bleich 180); it is a relatively recent word synthesizing ancient forms of hatred. To this day, Islamophobia emerges from a variety of studies “as a largely ambiguous phenomenon…, at times indistinguishable from other similar phenomen[a], at times both nondescript and indistinct” (Allen 123). While George Salaita prefers replacing it with...

  • Holy Terror!: Islamophobia and Intermediality in Frank Miller’s
           Graphic Novel

    • Authors: Frank Mehring
      Abstract: The graphic artist Frank Miller represents an innovative force in the field of graphic novels who pushes the medium into new territories. One such territory is Islamophobia and terrorism in his graphic novel Holy Terror (2011). This article explores how Islamophobia has been mediated and how media systems of the twenty-first century forge Islamophobia into new shapes asking: How does Frank Miller’s aesthetics of silhouetted bodies reframe Islamophobia in an interpictorial and intermedial discourse of images' To what extent do Miller’s graphic stylizations of Islamophobia remediate elements of his previous work on fictional (super)heroes and historical leaders from Batman to the 300 Spartans' I argue that Miller’s visual narrative participates in the Islamophobic discourse of American popular culture by appropriating a wide array of popular culture visual archives for a propagandistic call for Muslim “Othering.” Holy Terror references news media, films and television series, 9/11 pho...

  • Islamophobia without Islamophobes: New Strategies of Representing
           Imperialist versus Suicide Terrorist Necropolitics in Homeland and Syriana

    • Authors: Mahmoud Arghavan
      Abstract: This paper investigates the geopolitical context of the emergence of “suicide terrorism” to propose that terrorism in its various forms has less to do with religious ideologies in general and with Islamic faith in particular, and more to do with the colonial and neocolonial politics of Empire in the colonies, postcolonies and occupied territories by the U.S. army and its allies in the Middle East in the post-9/11 era. Two representations of the figure of the suicide terrorist will be analyzed as they are presented in the narratives suggested in the Showtime series Homeland (2011-) and the film Syriana (2005). I argue that even though the Islamicate world and Muslims in the post-9/11 era have generally been portrayed in a differentiated fashion, these media productions have had almost the same effects on the public as earlier Orientalist productions. Although they appear to endorse antiracism and multiculturalism on the surface, these current narratives simultaneously produce what Ev...

  • The Reluctant Islamophobes: Multimedia Dissensus in the Hollywood

    • Authors: Elena Furlanetto
      Abstract: This paper contributes to the theorization of how Orientalism has evolved after 9/11 and in the first two decades of the twenty-first century. I specifically address the multimediality of films and propose that post-9/11 Orientalism has fragmented into more digestible, more complex micronarratives dispersed throughout the interplay of different media which constitute the film experience. I recur to Foucault’s concept of dispositif to illustrate how any of these media—such as music, screenplay, editing, acting, etc.—may “[enter] into resonance or contradiction with the others” (Foucault 195), ambiguating the film’s politics. When the film’s different media pursue diverging politics, I speak of multimedia dissensus. In order to test this hypothesis, I focus on two films which explicitly champion diversity and aim to reverse the logics of Islamophobia by presenting tributes to Muslim culture or denunciations of Eurocentric discriminatory practices: Alejandro Amenábar’s Agora (2009) and...

  • Fear of an Islamic Planet' Intermedial Exchange and the Rhetoric of

    • Authors: Stefan L. Brandt
      Abstract: The post-9/11 era is marked by an unusual rise of Islamophobic rhetoric that permeates the U.S. cultural imaginary and connects a wide range of medial discourses from literature and cinema to television and the World Wide Web. Orientalist stereotypes have informed Hollywood blockbusters and television series as well as acclaimed novels such as Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner (2003), John Updike’s Terrorist (2006), and Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2007), not to mention Donald Trump’s speeches and writings on “radical Islamic terrorism.” My essay argues that contemporary public discourse in the U.S. addresses an array of viral images, portraying Muslims as essentially “alien” to mainstream American values. The fears of a potential—or already ongoing—“Islamization of America” are kept alive through continual interaction between texts and images from hegemonic visual discourse, involving what I call “intermedial exchange” between literary texts, films, television shows...

  • Gerald Farca, Playing Dystopia: Nightmarish Worlds in Video Games and the
           Player’s Aesthetic Response (Studies of Digital Media Culture)

    • Authors: Andrew Tzouras
      Abstract: Gerald Farca, Playing Dystopia: Nightmarish Worlds in Video Games and the Player’s Aesthetic Response (Studies of Digital Media Culture) transcript Verlag, Bielefeld, 2019. Pp. 434. ISBN-13: 978-3837645972 Andrew Tzouras, School of Engineering, University of Patras This is an excellent study for anyone looking to delve into the genre of dystopia in videogames. This book consists of an introduction and eight chapters. Gerald Farca, author and digital culture and game studies scholar, begins by establishing the term Video Game Dystopia (VGD) and underlining the effect such narratives can have on the player. Quoting Ingo Berensmeyer, the author tries to establish the importance of video game dystopias as a medium by stating that they allow the player “[T]o explore in a kind of trial action in a virtual environment, the consequences of breaking and transgressing norms without having to fear sanctions in real life” (15). In other words, the author tries to underline the effectiveness immers...

  • Mitchell A. Orenstein, The Lands in Between: Russia vs. the West and the
           New Politics of Hybrid War

    • Authors: Marcus Walsh-Führing
      Abstract: Mitchell A. Orenstein, The Lands in Between: Russia vs. the West and the New Politics of Hybrid War Oxford University Press, 2019. Pp. 232. ISBN 978-190936143 Marcus Walsh-Führing On July 16, 2009, a group of twenty-two Central and Eastern European leaders and liberal intellectuals wrote “An Open Letter to the Obama Administration from Central and Eastern Europe,” addressing their grievances of Russia’s agenda to maintain its political influence in the region. As the Obama administration did not heed the call from pro-democracy supporters, Russia was able to expand its antidemocratic agenda. This inaction of the Obama administration has created a precedent on how the United States engages with Russia. At the time, the Obama administration believed that it would be able to address an arms control agreement with Russia by supporting the Russian government’s liberal agenda. To the dismay of the United States, the Russian government backed away from its liberal agenda and restored a Cold ...

    • Authors: Chrysavgi Papagianni
      Abstract: Jenn Brandt and Callie Clare, An Introduction to Popular Culture in the US: People, Politics and Power N.Y and London: Bloomsbury, 2018. Pp.288. ISBN-13: 978-15013-2057-6 Chrysavgi Papagianni, Zayed University Popular culture acquired a new currency in the 1970s with Ray Browne founding the Department of Popular Culture at Bowling Green University. Seeing popular culture as an expression of various cultures and identities whose voices needed to be heard, Browne fought against the hegemony of an elite culture that was too limiting. The historical moment was ripe for such claims as sociopolitical developments challenged the elitisms of Eurocentric schemata. Yet, despite its establishment as an academic discipline, popular culture in the new millennium is still fraught with misconceptions and often treated with mistrust and deride. “Popular” is actually often conflated with “pop,” a word that connotes a certain frivolity and superficiality found in mass produced products that are meant to...

      Abstract: Kirsten MacLeod, American Little Magazines of the Fin de Siècle: Art, Protest, and Cultural Transformation
      Toronto, Buffalo, London: University of Toronto Press, 2018. ISBN 978-1-4426-4316-1. Pp 474 Stamatina Dimakopoulou, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens In American Little Magazines of the Fin de Siècle: Art, Protest, and Cultural Transformation, Kirsten Macleod offers a compelling cultural history and posits these publications as an important force-field in a context where shortly after modernist magazines appeared. MacLeod calls for the expansion of the field of modern periodical studies so as to include the fin-de-siècle periodicals within its scope, despite that fact that their “democratic character’ and their “highly personalized nature” have rendered [them] largely irrelevant to trends in modernist studies.” (8). Although these publications do not anticipate the tenor of modernist magazines in terms of content, readership and sustained embrace of avant-gardism, the...
