“Orientalism, Secular Feminism, and the War on Terror”
A Lecture by Nadia Guessous, Feminist and Gender Studies
Colorado College

Muslim women’s veiling practices have been a recurring object of commentary, condemnation and relentless investigation ever since 19th century Western travelers started writing about the Muslim women they encountered and the veils that concealed them from their sight. In the past three decades, veiling has reemerged as an omnipotent and visceral flashpoint, a subject of heated debate and moral panic, an object of state management, legislation and criminalization in various Western contexts. Rarely has a modern sartorial practice been the object of so much unwarranted attention and repeated condemnation. While many scholars have critically analyzed the politics of headscarf controversies in Western contexts, this presentation will focus instead on the transnational effects of this discourse of the veil on secular feminist politics and subjectivity in postcolonial Morocco. Based on years of field research among founding members of the feminist movement in Morocco, this paper highlights the relationship between secular forms of feminist exclusion and the conscripting logics of both colonial modernity and the war on terror.
