A Phenomenology of Cultural Racism: Veils, Bodies and the Nature of Culture      Prof. Alia Al-Saji’s work is a feminist analysis of representations of Muslim women in the contemporary West that questions the ways in which race and gender are at play in representations of the Muslim headscarf or “veil.” Her work in phenomenology focuses on questions of embodiment, memory, and intersubjectivity in terms both of affectivity and perception.
