Sylvia Chan-Malik Being Muslim


2018 Outstanding Academic Title, given by Choice Magazine [/b] An exploration of twentieth and twenty-first century U.S. Muslim womanhood that centers the lived experience of women of color [b] For Sylvia Chan-Malik, Muslim womanhood is constructed through everyday and embodied acts of resistance, what she calls affective insurgency. In negotiating the histories of anti-Blackness, U.S. imperialism, and women’s rights of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Being Muslim explores how U.S. Muslim women’s identities are expressions of Islam as both Black protest religion and universal faith tradition. Through archival images, cultural texts, popular media, and interviews, the author maps how communities of American Islam became sites of safety, support, spirituality, and social activism, and how women of color were central to their formation. By accounting for American Islam’s rich histories of mobilization and community, Being Muslim brings insight to the resistance that all Muslim women must engage in the post-9/11 United States. From the stories that she gathers, Chan-Malik demonstrates the diversity and similarities of Black, Arab, South Asian, Latina, and multiracial Muslim women, and how American understandings of Islam have shifted against the evolution of U.S. white nationalism over the past century. In borrowing from the lineages of Black and women-of-color feminism, Chan-Malik offers us a new vocabulary for U.S. Muslim feminism, one that is as conscious of race, gender, sexuality, and nation, as it is region and religion.

Alan Summerly Cole Patriarchs on Paper


The truth of Chan Buddhism—better known as “Zen”—is regularly said to be beyond language, and yet Chan authors—medieval and modern—produced an enormous quantity of literature over the centuries. To make sense of this well-known paradox, <I>Patriarchs on Paper</I> explores several genres of Chan literature that appeared during the Tang and Song dynasties (c. 600–1300), including genealogies, biographies, dialogues, poems, monastic handbooks, and koans. Working through this diverse body of literature, Alan Cole details how Chan authors developed several strategies to evoke images of a perfect Buddhism in which wonderfully simple masters transmitted Buddhism’s final truth to one another, suddenly and easily, and, of course, independent of literature and the complexities of the Buddhist monastic system. Chan literature, then, reveled in staging delightful images of a Buddhism free of Buddhism, tempting the reader, over and over, with the possibility of finding behind the thick façade of real Buddhism—with all its rules, texts, doctrines, and institutional solidity—an ethereal world of pure spirit.  <I>Patriarchs on Paper</I> charts the emergence of this kind of “fantasy Buddhism” and details how it interacted with more traditional forms of Chinese Buddhism in order to show how Chan’s illustrious ancestors were created in literature in order to further a wide range of real-world agendas.

Earl Derr Biggers Charlie Chan Carries On


"Charlie Chan Carries On" – the 1931 Fox motion picture starring Warner Oland as Chan – is now considered a «lost» film (the original film materials were destroyed in a vault fire.) Unless a copy surfaces in some remote corner of the world, as happened with «Charlie Chan in Paris,» this original screenplay is the closest Chan fans will come to seeing the original film. (There is also a Portuguese-language version called «Eran Trece» [There Were Thirteen] with a different cast. The 1940 film, «Charlie Chan's Murder Cruise,» starring Sidney Toler, Oland's successor in the role of Charlie Chan, was also based on the same novel, but with a different script.)
