ReOrienting the Gaze

Much of the contemporary Western understanding of the countries of the Middle East and North Africa is informed by the European tradition of Orientalism.

In his seminal 1978 publication, Edward Said coined the term “Orientalism” to describe the historically essentializing Western view of Middle Eastern and North African peoples and cultures as inferior, uncivilized, and exotic. During the early periods of European colonialism in regions of the Middle East and North Africa, such Orientalist ideals framed Western conceptions of their colonies. Unfortunately, this reductive mentality has continued reverberations in the West’s present-day attitude towards the Middle East and North Africa.
