Slide 1: Othering Moroccans In Babel The Outline : The Outline Introduction Backwardness & Bestiality Irresponsibility Sexual Aberrancy Conclusion Introduction : Introduction A Spiavk coinage, othering designates the process whereby colonial discourse creates its others. “Othering is a dialectical process because the colonizing Other is established at the same time as its colonized others are produced as subjects.” Othering in the realm of postcolonial theory is conspicuously captured in Said’s groundbreaking classic, Orientalism (1978). Ashcroft, Bill, Griffiths, Gareth and Tiffin, Helen. Post Colonial Studies: The Key Concepts. 2nd ed. Oxfordshire; New York: Routledge, 2007, p. 156. Backwardness & Bestiality : Backwardness & Bestiality Several Babel scenes portray countrymen in southern Morocco as either backward barbarians or bestial savages: Backwardness Bestiality Irresponsibility : Irresponsibility To be responsible for something is to be answerable for it. We have prospective responsibilities, things it is up to us to attend to: these may attach to particular roles (the responsibilities of, for instance, parents or doctors), or be responsibilities we have as moral agents, or as human beings. We have retrospective responsibilities, for what we have done or failed to do, for the effects of our actions or omissions. Such responsibilities are often (but not always) moral or legal responsibilities. Craig, Edward. The Shorter Rouledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy. London; New York: Routledge, 2005, p. 906. Sexual Aberrancy : Sexual Aberrancy Babel represents Abdullah’s sexually deviant son and daughter as caught up in a incest-like relationship, breaking down the incest taboo, branded as “a universal taboo.” H. James, Birx. Encyclopedia of Anthropology. California: Sage Publications, Inc., 2006, p, 1273. Conclusion : Conclusion “In the films and television the Arab is associated either with lechery or dishonesty” In a like manner, Babel brings to the foreground similarly demonising and dehumanising attributes characterising Arabs and Moroccans in particular. These, in fine, comprise backwardness, cruelty, irresponsibility and sexual deviance. Said, Edward W. Orientalism. New York: Vintage Books, 1979, p. 287.
