An Archive of Hope: Translating Memories of Revolution

Hoda Elsadda This essay offers an analysis of issues related to the translation of memories of resistance of women who participated in protests since 2011 in Egypt for inclusion in a web archive created and managed by the Women and Memory Forum. It argues that stories and testimonies are powerful modes of activism in the struggle over the collective memory of a particular group or country. They complement and/or contest official narratives and potentially construct counter-narratives of dominant histories.

Imaging the "New Man": Gender and Nation in Arab Literary Narratives in the Early Twentieth Century

Hoda Elsadda From: Journal of Middle East Women's Studies Volume 3, Number 2, Spring 2007 pp. 31-55 Abstract The emergence of the New Woman in Egypt as a central trope in the nationalist narrative of nation-building and modernity has been the subject of scholarly interest for more than a decade, yet there has been little research on her logical counterpart: the New Man. Although representations of the New Man have always been a subtext in representations of the New Woman, the manifestations and implications of these constructed imaginings within the Egyptian nationalist narrative have yet to be explored.
