3 2017-06-08 · American literary critic, postcolonial theorist and political commentator who was born in the Middle East. In 1963 Edward Said (1935- 2003) was made Parr Professor of English and Comparative Literature, at Columbia University, New York, where he has remained to this day. Edward Said talks about Orientalism in very negative terms because it reflects the prejudices of the west towards the exotic east. But I was also having fun thinking of Orientalism as a genre like Cowboys and Indians is a genre – they’re not an accurate representation of the American west, they’re like a fairy tale genre.

2016-11-16 · quotes about orientalism today “…to be interested in the East was something bright young Westerners would find to be an all consuming passion.” “If the world has become immediately accessible to a Western citizen living in the electronic age, the Orient too has drawn nearer to him, and is now less a myth perhaps than a place crisscrossed by Western, especially American, interests.” It is important to see Edward Said’s work, and the mixed reception it received, in the round. This means reading Orientalism as carefully as its author would wish and then being able to understand its role as the first part of a project which required the construction of alternative methodologies as its complement. Orientalism is what Said calls the personal dimension. He quotes Gramsci as saying “The starting point of critical elaboration is the consciousness of what one really is, and knowing thyself.” This quote applies directly to the subject matter at hand, and also to Said’s analysis of it. The concept of Orientalism was coined by the late Edward Said, a Palestinian-American academic who founded the discipline of Postcolonial Studies. In its broadest sense, Orientalism is the framework through which Western writers, policymakers, and the general public have interpreted and defined “the Orient” (the eastern part of Asia). Desde su publicación en 1978, el libro de Edward Said Orientalismo ha influido profundamente en una amplia gama de disciplinas.
