(Re)thinking Orientalism is a text that examines the visual discourse of Orientalism through the pedagogy of contemporary graphic narratives. Using feminist, critical race, and postcolonial theoretical and pedagogical lenses, the book uses visual discourse analysis and visual semiology to situate the narratives within Islamophobia and neo-Orientalism in the post-9/11 media context. In the absence of mainstream media that tells the complex stories of Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world, there has been a wave of publications of graphic narratives written and drawn from various perspectives that can be used to create curriculum that presents culture, religion, and experience from a multitude of perspectives. The book is an accessible, upper level undergraduate/graduate level text written to give readers insights into toxic xenophobia created through media representation. It provides a theoretical foundation for students to engage in critical analysis and production of visual media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Though primarily written for college faculty teaching undergraduate students, (Re)Thinking Orientalism has plenty to offer high school teachers as well. If you are one of the many who feel inadequately equipped to teach about comics, let alone discuss them in a classroom, this book is a very clearheaded, easy to follow guide that will help any novice understand how to introduce comics within a sophisticated and academically rigorous framework."
(Antonio Lopez, Journal of Media Literacy Education 7(1)
