Marilyn Booth – ‘This tyranny you have called Nature’: Zaynab Fawwaz, Arabophone feminisms, and translational patriarchy in 1890s Egypt (FASS Decolonisation/ELCW International Women’s Day Lecture).
In partnership with FASS Decolonisation, ELCW welcomes Professor Marilyn Booth (Oxford) – co-winner of Man Booker International Prize, 2019. Marilyn Booth is Khalid bin Abdullah Al Saud Professor for the Study of the Contemporary Arab World (Oxford).
This lecture focuses on Marilyn Booth’s recently published intellectual biography of early Arabic feminist Zaynab Fawwaz (c.1850-1914), a study of her life in Ottoman Syria and Egypt and her writings, in the context of Arabophone debates on gender, modernity and the good society particularly in the 1890s.
