Tashweesh on building bridges and feminist alliances w/ Fatima Daas
opening lecture
WE 28.09 18:30

Identifying as a Muslim, feminist, and gay writer, Fatima Daas is becoming the new voice of her generation. She grew up in the majority-Muslim Parisian banlieue of Clichy-sous-Bois, with her parents and sisters, who were all born in Algeria. She’s the only one born in France, the youngest child in the family. In high school, she rebelled, claimed the right to express her ideas and wrote her first texts. Fatima was noticed for her writing talent and began studying literature. La Petite Dernière (The Last One), her first novel published in 2020 is now translated into nine languages.
