Creator Eijaz, Abida; Universidad de Punjab
Subject framing; stereotyping; Othering; clash of civilization; Muslims in films.
Description Films have the potential to play an active role in determining when and how to evoke certain realities depending on which issues are selected, what discourses are highlighted, how observations are framed, what associations (positive and negative) are established, which symbols are selected for representation, and in what ways the content is treated. Many studies conclude that Muslims and Islam have been receiving a negative treatment in films. This study evaluates major propositions and findings of recent research on trends and patterns of Muslims’ depictions in fiction films. The literature is evaluated for six themes, namely clash of civilization or arbitration, stereotyping as deficient or efficient information processing, framing as the “other,” marginalization and/or prominence, representative and referential, and market driven and/or popular taste.
