Ikram Masmoudi

War and Occupation in Iraqi Fiction

€ 134.15


The last three decades in Iraqi history can be summarized in these words: dictatorship, war and occupation. After the fall of Saddam`s regime Iraqi novelists are not only writing about the occupation and current disintegration of Iraq but are also revisiting previous wars that devastated their lives. Ikram Masmoudi examines how recent Iraqi fiction about war depicts the Iraqi subject in its relation to war, coercion, subjugation and occupation. The theoretical concept of the Homo Sacer, the killable, as defined by Giorgio Agamben, is used to explore the lives and the experiences of different war actors such as the soldier, the war deserter, the camp detainee and the suicide bomber depicted in in their `bare life` as sacred men doomed to death in the necropolitical context
