Botshon, Lisa and Plastas, Melinda. (2009) “Homeland In/Security: A Discussion and Workshop on Teaching Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis.” Feminist Teacher 20, no. 1

Tuesday 29 March 2022

This article interestingly explores the reaction of students to Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and how readers particularly feel the anti-war message of the book because of the empathy the protagonist inspires. This is in stark contrast to Reading Lolita in Tehran, in which the empathy was present, but it also reinforced a Western positionality that Satrapi instead deconstructs.
