  • Marased (4): The veil and 9/11: the orientalist discourse revisited
  • Taleb Bilal 2014
  • The Veil and 9/11: The Orientalist Discourse Revisited is an attempt to excavatethe prevailing discourses on the veil, notably after the bombing of the World TradeCenter in New York. This article tries to argue that the Orientalist discourse has been revisited in most of the Western debates on the veil. For instance, the veil after 9/11 was connected with a lot of stereotypes and prejudices such as the veil as a sign of oppression, gender inequality, terrorism, patriarchal ideologies, lack of voice and more significantly a refusal to adopt Western values and ways of life. Furthermore, this article will try to come across four items: Orientalism and the question of difference; the perception of the veil in colonial era; the veil and 9/11; and the veil and New American Orientalism.
