Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,1, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg (Institut für fremdsprachliche Philologien), 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Es werden unterschiedliche Erwartungen an die die verschiedenen Geschlechter herangetragen, wer sie erfüllt gilt als typisch Mann oder typisch Frau, wer sie nicht erfüllt kann Schwierigkeiten bekommen, sich in seiner Gesellschaft zurechtzufinden und akzeptiert zu werden. Es gibt äußerliche und kulturelle Merkmale, die Männern und Frauen zugeschrieben werden. Sie weisen interkulturell große Ähnlichkeit auf und passen auf die traditionelle Rollenverteilung. Innerhalb dieser ist der Mann der Ernährer der Familie und die Frau ist Hausfrau und Mutter und kümmert sich um die inneren Angelegenheiten der Familie. Diese Rollenverteilung hat sich in westlichen Industriegesellschaften insoweit gewandelt, dass erwerbstätige Frauen zum alltäglichen Bild gehören. Dies bedeutet für sie nun wiederum eine Doppelbelastung, da die häuslichen Pflichten weiterhin erfüllt werden müssen. Deshalb fangen auch kleine Mädchen schon früh an, sich über eine Vereinbarkeit von Haushalt, Kindern und Beruf Gedanken zu machen, während Männer sich wiederum ganz auf die Berufsplanung konzentrieren können. Die Geschlechterrolle, egal in welchem Kulturkreis, beinhaltet die Erwartungen, die an eine Person bestimmten Geschlechts gestellt wird. „Die Geschlechterrolle ist immer zugeschrieben, sie ist zudem universal und zeitlich immer vorhanden.“ Nun ist es so, dass die Erwartungen an ein Geschlecht innerhalb einer gemischtgeschlechtlichen Gruppe stärker hervortreten als in einer gleichgeschlechtlichen. Somit ist das Rollenverhalten der einzelnen Person auch stärker ausgeprägt. Diese Überlegung legt nahe, dass bei einer Vermischung von Kulturen, die Erwartungen an das Rollenverhalten innerhalb der anderen Kultur auch größer sind als innerhalb der eigenen und Rollen überspitzt werden. Die Verteilung dieser Geschlechterrollen stellt sich heute in der westlichen Gesellschaft als ein Problem dar. Vor allem die Frauen, für welche diese Tradition eher Nachteile als Vorteile bringt, wollen sich emanzipieren, von den zugeschriebenen und teilweise vorgeschriebenen Verhaltensweisen loslösen und selbständig werden. In islamischen Gesellschaften ist der Gerechtigkeitssinn der Frauen sicher ebenso ausgeprägt, wird aber aberzogen und unterdrückt. „Genderthemes“ entstehen da, wo Frauen und Männer ungleich behandelt werden. Eine Abschaffung der Ungleichheit ist möglich, wenn sie erkannt wird und alle Beteiligten gemeinsam daran arbeiten.

After ten years living abroad, Tarquin Hall wanted to return to his native London. Lured by his nostalgia for a leafy suburban childhood spent in south-west London, he returned with his Indian-born, American fiance in tow. But, priced out of the housing market, they found themselves living not in a townhouse, oozing Victorian charm, but in a squalid attic above a Bangladeshi sweatshop on London's Brick Lane. A grimy skylight provided the only window on their new world: a filthy, noisy street where drug dealers and prostitutes peddled their wares and tramps urinated on the pavements. At night, traffic lights lit up the ceiling and police sirens wailed into the early hours. Yet, as Hall got to know Brick Lane, he discovered beneath its unlovely surface an inner world where immigrants and asylum seekers struggle to better themselves and dream of escape. Salaam Brick Lane is a journey of discovery by an outsider in his own native city. It offers an explicit glimpse of the underbelly of London's most infamous quarter, the real-life world of Monica Ali's bestselling novel.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7, University of Hildesheim (Institut für Interkulturelle Kommunikation), course: Empire and Literature, language: English, abstract: Monica Ali is a British author who was born in 1967 in East Pakistan (as Bangladesh was called then) to a Bangladeshi father and English mother. The family had to move to England due to the civil war in 1971. Monica Ali studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Wadham College, University of Oxford and later worked in design and publishing. Brick Lane, her debut novel, caused a sensation and controversy back in 2003 when the novel was first published, and again in 2007 when the novel was made into a film. Brick Lane is about a Bangladeshi woman who came to England at the age of eighteen due to an arranged marriage knowing only two words in English: “sorry” and “thank you”. Nazneen struggles to adjust to her new life as a wife and an immigrant in a new country. On her journey of adjusting she learns new things (“ice e-skating”, making money by sewing, the English language) and makes new friends. One of them, a younger man, even becomes her lover. He opens a new world for her and contributes a lot to her personal growth. She finds strength to fight against a mean usurer and even Fate itself. The novel brings up a lot of issues for discussion, such as feminism, racism, post-colonialism, fatalism, Islam in a modern multicultural society, and problems of cultural minorities. In this paper I would like to consider problems of integration of such cultural minorities in the modern British society as exemplified by three families described in Monica Ali’s novel Brick Lane.

Scientific Essay from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, Comenius University in Bratislava (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: Monica Ali's novel Brick Lane (2003) marked her literary breakthrough. Ali hereby followed the tradition of Salman Rushdie and Hanif Kureishi who had placed Islam back into the English speaking novel thus showing that the contemporary English novel is (still) heavily influenced by migrant writers coming from the former colonies. These writers share a double vision of England simply because they are insiders and outsiders at the same time. Their characters therefore are very convincing and they introduce Islam to the (Western) reader, a religion which for such a long time has been presented in a stereotyped and thus negative way. Ali -like Rushdie and Kureshi - also uses London as the place of action and thus uses the literary concept of the 'postcolonial city'. Her description of the integration of a Muslim woman into British society also follows the notion of the 'condition of England novel' which confronts outer developments with human value. Ali's main achievement, however, lies in her image of a Muslim woman who picks up the West as a chance. Ali here differs from male Muslim writers who too often confront the reader with the failure of their (male) characters. It is exactly here where Ali's concept of a Muslim woman seems to have been a frontrunner for other Muslim writers to follow. Writers like Leila Abdoulela (Minaret 2005), Tahmima Anam (A Golden Age 2007); The Good Muslim 2011), Fadia Faquir (My Name is Salma 2007) followed Ali in their presentation oft he female thus showing a different kind of female Muslim identity.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 3.0, University of Marburg (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: 10008 PS: London in Contemporary Post-Colonial Literature, language: English, abstract: This research paper deals with Monica Ali's first novel Brick Lane, an epic saga about a Bangladeshi family living in London, which explores the British immigration experience. The novel is highly disputed with its most important aspects of identity, belonging and community problems. People who actually live in the estate of Brick Lane feel being patronized by Ali's novel the more or the less. Just to show how critics reacted to Ali ́s masterpiece, I will give two examples briefly. Ian Jack, the editor of the Granta Magazine said: “Monica Ali is not from Sylhet [which lies in the far north-east of the country next to the Indian state of Assam and was, until the partition of India, part of Assam and not Bengal] and nor are her novel ́s principal characters. Sylhettis, however, are the people her characters (though not their author) live among. I spent a week [...] in Sylhet [...]. [...] When I got back to Calcutta, I got into a shouting match with a taxi-driver about The Satanic Verses. ‘But it ́s only a novel,’ I said. ‘You know, personal, made-up, invented – fiction.’ ‘Exactly’, he said. ‘Fiction. Lies.’ Brick Lane is a fine first novel, but nobody should be surprised if it raises similar arguments. In a way, they are a compliment to it an to an ambitious idea of what fiction can still do.” Matthew Taylor, The Guardian, said: “Community Leaders from the neighbourhood in the East End of London that inspired Monica Ali ́s Booker-nominated first novel, Brick Lane, have branded her work a ‘despicable insult’ to Bangladeshis living in the area. The Greater Sylhet Welfare and Development Council, which represents many of Britain ́s 500,000 Bangladeshis, has written an 18-page letter to the author outlining their objections to the ‘shameful’ way the book depicts the community. They feel the book portrays Bangladeshis in Brick Lane as backward, uneducated and unsophisticated.”2 In addition, the treatment of language and time in the book is of just the same importance. It makes Ali ́s novel somewhat unique and different. While Brick Lane is meant to be satirical, it can be read as a drama, for in terms of living the novel focusses on the buddhist aspect that its characters have been put on earth just to suffer. This research paper will consist of two main parts. In the first one, I will give an exact analysis and interpretation of the novel attending to the most important aspects like characterization, the structure and ...
