Dr. Tehmina Pirzada

Dr. Pirzada's work focuses on Gogi (1970–the present) by Nigar Nazar and Haroon Rashid’s Burka Avenger (2013–the present), to examine the empowering portrayal of Muslim girlhood that these works offer. She emphasizes that graphic narratives have become a powerful medium representing the resistance of Muslim girlhood and analyzes how these artists rework the western superhero trope to foreground the girls’ everyday heroism.
