Mariam rahmani

Mariam Rahmani is a fiction and non-fiction writer who aims to contribute to the variegated field of transnational women of color feminisms, working from her position as an Iranian and American and as a postcolonial and imperial subject. She is currently writing a coming-of-age novel that follows the friendship between two Iranian American/American Iranian women growing up in an orthodox Muslim community in Ohio, while her academic research traces a genealogy of Iranian feminisms from the nineteenth century to present, interrogating the politics of modernization and Orientalism and self-Orientalization, among other subjects.

Most recently, she published an essay on The Rumpus exposing the use and abuse of brown women’s bodies in the neo-Orientalist language of the Muslim ban. Last summer, in 2016, Mariam had the pleasure of participating in a fiction workshop at VONA/Voices, one of only a few multigenre workshops in the U.S. dedicated to writers of color.
