The essays disguise such issues as Arab hip-hop's transnational imaginary; gender/sexuality and the Muslim electronic diaspora; patriotic drama and the media's battle on Terror; the worldwide negotiation of the Prophet Mohammad cartoons controversy; the Latin American paradoxes of Turcophobia/Turcophilia; the ambiguities of the bellydancing fad; French and American commodification of Rumi spirituality; the reception of Iranian memoirs as cultural domestication; and the politics of translation of Turkish novels into English. Taken jointly, the essays examine the hegemonic discourses that place "the heart East" as a consumable exoticized item, whereas additionally constructing advanced understandings of self-representation in literature, cinema/TV, tune, functionality, visible tradition, and electronic areas. Charting the moving significations of differing and overlapping sorts of Orientalism, the amount addresses center japanese diasporic practices from a transnational standpoint that brings postcolonial cultural reviews the way to undergo on Arab American reports, heart japanese reports, and Latin American experiences. Between the center East and the Americas disentangles the traditional separation of areas, relocating past the binarist thought of "here" and "there" to imaginatively show the thorough interconnectedness of cultural geographies.
