The last couple of decades have witnessed a flourishing of Arab-American literature across multiple genres. Yet, increased interest in this literature is ironically paralleled by a prevalent bias against Arabs and Muslims that portrays their long presence in the US as a recent and unwelcome phenomenon. Spanning the 1990s to the present, Carol Fadda-Conrey takes in the sweep of literary and cultural texts by Arab-American writers in order to understand the ways in which their depictions of Arab homelands, whether actual or imagined, play a crucial role in shaping cultural articulations of US ci.
Introduction: Transnational Arab-American Belonging -- Reimagining the Ancestral Arab Homeland -- To the Arab Homeland and Back: Narratives of Returns and Rearrivals -- Translocal Connections between the US and the Arab World -- Representing Arabs and Muslims in the US after 9/11: Gender, Religion, and Citizenship -- Conclusion: Transnational Solidarity and the Arab Uprisings.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 217-235) and index.
