In Keshni Kashyap’s and Mari Araki’s Tina’s Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary (2011), Los Angeles high school student Tina Malhotra discovers the strength of her religion and cultural background through the help of (1) an English 1 Honors: Existentialism Semester Project on Jean-Paul Sartre, (2) the Hindu god Krishna and (3) a high school stage production of Rashomon, (4) a influential conversation with Urvashi Auntie, and (5) a romantic flirtation with a schoolmate named Neil Strumminger. Evaluate the Orientalism of ONE of the above interactions in terms of Edward Said’s second and third definitions of Orientalism.
Let me repeat my notes about Said’s three definition of Orientalism
For Edward Said, Orientalism is:
1. “Anyone who teaches, writes about, or researches the Orient… is an Orientalist, and what he or she does in Orientalism” (214).
2. “Orientalism is a style of thought based upon an ontological and epistemological distinction made between “the Orient” and (most of the time) “the Occident” (214).
3. Orientalism is “the corporate institution for dealing with the Orient… by making statements about it, authorizing views of it, describing it, by teaching it, settling it, ruling over it: in short, Orientalism as a Western Style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient” (214).
