Masculine identity in the fiction of the Arab east since 1967

Samira Aghacy, Evelyne Accad

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Through a series of close readings of twenty contemporary Arabic novels, Aghacy presents a mosaic of masculinities that challenges the generally held view of an essentialized archetypal Arab man and mirrors a contested vision of manliness where men figure in diverse sociocultural environments. This groundbreaking work reveals the volatile nature of masculinity and its inextricability from femininity.
