UNBECOMING SUBJECT, BECOMING MUSLIM WOMAN IN SHELINA ZAHRA JANMOHAMED’S LOVE IN A HEADSCARF: MUSLIM WOMAN SEEKS THE ONE
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
