Abstract

(essay date 2010) In the following essay, Weber-Fève discusses the “transnational” works of Sebbar and French-Algerian politician and filmmaker Yamina Benguigui. She describes female characters in these artists’ works as “ethnic Othered,” contending that they often appear in marginalized positions in the domestic sphere.
