Contesting the dominant other: the case of the Francophone North African writer
Race and the humanities.
Mehrez discusses the recent development of bilingual writing among Francophone writers (specifically Arab) as being distinct from the currently-existing alternatives of writing in French while adhering to a metropole perspective or of immersing oneself in Arabic. She points out the political implications of such a choice.
