An Interview with Mohja Kahf
Davis, Hilary E.; Zine, Jasmin; Taylor, Lisa K.
Intercultural Education, v18 n4 p383-388 Oct 2007
In this article, an interview with Muslim author Mohja Kahf is presented. Kahf is the author of the novel "The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf" and "Emails from Scheherazad." During the interview, Kahf talked about how her religion has become the foremost factor in bringing her to her voice. She also related how she became dismayed with Islam being painted as extremist and terroristic not only in Western media but by secular Arabs. She also described the audiences of her works. She also talked about how a tension exists between her artistic expression and the way her publisher packaged and marketed her works. (Contains 1 note.)
