Contemporary Pakistani Speculative Fiction and the Global Imaginary

Democratizing Human Futures

«

"Shazia Sadaf and Aroosa Kanwal’s exciting new book highlights the ways in which writers of Pakistani heritage engage with ‘desi’ (South Asian) tropes and metaphors to reimagine nonwhite Muslim futures. This volume foregrounds ways in which selected literary work set in Pakistani Muslim world contexts reflects imaginative modes that exemplify the fantastika. Sadaf and Kanwal put a desi approach into conversation with Western-centric worldviews of the future, drawing upon religious mythology, Qur’anic eschatology, South Asian traditions, and Islamic feminism while engaging with Pakistani creative voices. This book breaks new ground in its attention to very recent speculative and science fiction texts, many of which have not been discussed in detail elsewhere."

Claire Chambers, Professor of Global Literature, University of York

"In this important study, Sadaf and Kanwal situate Pakistani speculative fiction within djinn mythology, Islamic feminisms, and local folklore alike. Their riveting analyses will be crucial as we all imagine and speculate about our collective future together."

Shazia Rahman, author of Place and Postcolonial Ecofeminism: Pakistani Women’s Literary and Cinematic Fictions (University of Nebraska Press, 2019)
