Afghani Women and the War on Terror
This slide presentation by Sanjukta Ghosh focuses on how media constructions of Afghani women were used to mobilize war against an already beleaguered nation. Using images from mainstream as well as alternative media such as the feminist press, it shows that the rhetoric of the media and their neat cultural icons was reminiscent of that used by Victorian feminists.
In making this analogy, the presentation brings into focus how Muslim women’s images have been used throughout history to further social and political ends. Special Arrangements: digital projector and screen.
Additional Costs: $100 plus mileage.
Available in correctional facilities.
