No image available for this title
This thesis investigates Adiba Jaigirdar's The Henna Wars (2020) novel as
the primary text. This novel portrays the life of protagonist Irish-Bangladeshi girl
Nishat Ahsan experiences discrimination at school in Dublin because of the
dominancy of Anglo-Irish conducts racial bias about the only Bangladeshi person.
However, the story develops with the protagonist's intention to bring henna to
oppose racism against Anglo-Irish. This thesis uses a qualitative approach and
presents the analysis in a close textual analysis method. The data collection is
assembled through narration that refers to idiom expressions to depict and challenge
racial discrimination and secondary sources from books, related journals, and
others. This thesis applies the theory of orientalism by Edward W. Said, which
discusses Anglo-Irish domination and authority over the Bangladeshi minority in
The Henna Wars. Indeed, several quotations in this novel describe how the school
environments are depicted as an unsupported place for Muslim immigrants. To
resist to the ideas of anti-Muslim racism, Jaigirdar's novel uses several idioms to
undermine Anglo-Irish supremacy in the novel. In doing so, this novel engages with
traditional henna culture from Bangladesh to preserve the ethnic culture. The
protagonist also attracts Anglo-Irishes with henna tattooes, which function both to
promote ethnic culture and to resist to the ideas of anti-Muslim racism in Irish lands.
