Abstract:
Wedding in Galilee (1987) and Season of Migration to the North (1966) exemplify the use of geography and sexuality as aesthetic expressions of political conditions. In order to imagine new politics—in this case, in Sudan and Palestine—one must be in between the remembered past and the imagined future. In this film and novel, geography and sexuality are used to explore what it is like to be-in-between, and thereby they help show the process of imagining new politics. In other words, geography and sexuality comment on the process of political remembering and imagining in each work through the theme of liminality.
