Ideological agendas

June 16, 2011

What ideological agendas are embedded in the Taris series, by Fleur Beale, and The Blood of the Lamb series, by Mandy Hager?  

Why make Juno and Maryam ‘the exception’ rather than ‘the rule’ in these communities?

At first glance, these places (the settings of these novels – particularly the communities) seem different – or Other – but they are also perfectly comprehensible and … familiar… How ‘Other’ are they, really?
