Islamabad
Dr Aroosa Kanwal, assistant professor at the Department of English, International Islamic University (IIU), Islamabad, has authored a book titled 'Rethinking Identities in Contemporary Pakistani Fiction: Beyond 9/11'.
Published by Palgrave Macmillan, the book focuses on the way that notions of home and identity have changed for Muslims as a result of international 'war on terror' rhetoric.
It uniquely links the post-9/11 stereotyping of Muslims and Islam in the West to the roots of current ‘jihadism’ and the resurgence of ethnocentrism within the subcontinent and beyond. The author proposes an articulation of a flexible identity among Muslims that is termed a 'global ummah' after 9/11.
Dr. Aroosa is a graduate of IIU and she has completed her PhD from Lancaster University’s (UK), English and Creative Writing Department under IIUI’s faculty development programme.
She currently teaches courses in South Asian literature, modern short fiction, Pakistani literature in English, while also supervises research thesis in the related areas.
The author owns number of publications, conferences presentations and talks to her credit.
