Open Access Journal: Everyday Orientalism

ISSN: 2635-215X

The concept of Orientalism was developed by the literary scholar Edward Said who, in his seminal work Orientalism (1978), defined it as “the corporate institution for dealing with the Orient – dealing with it by making statements about it, authorizing views of it, describing it, by teaching it, settling it, ruling over it : in short, Orientalism [is] a Western style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient”. Everyday Orientalism is a platform through which students, academics, and citizens can reflect on how history and power shape the way in which human societies define themselves through the “Other”. As such, we understand Said’s concept in its broader sense, that is as an analytical paradigm that can be applied to many contexts beyond the 19th century “Orient”.
