Abstract

Drawing on Judith Butler’s conceptualizations of ‘subject formation’ and ‘desire’ and Jasmine Zine’s notion of ‘Muslim identity’ we intend to extrapolate that how the protagonist in Love in a Headscarf: Muslim Woman Seeks the one, overcomes otherness through desire and dismantles her true strengths through her Muslim identity in diaspora. Our research contribution is to develop a nexus between subject formation and Islamic Feminism and to examine emergence of the protagonist as a Muslim woman in diaspora.

Keywords: Subject formation, Desire, Muslim identity, Islamic Feminism
