about

This book examines the meanings behind the meme, "Je Suis Charlie," that spread round the world following the terrorist massacre at Charlie Hebdo
 
For years, the satirical French newspaper has polarized opinion in Europe and abroad. Its publication of the notorious Danish Muhammad cartoons in 2006 led to its prosecution for hate speech. The special issue it printed in 2011 “guest-edited” by the prophet Muhammad prompted a terrorist bombing of its offices. In 2015, it issued a taunting message to Muslim terrorists, and 17 people died when Al-Qaida retaliated.
 
To some, Charlie Hebdo is a hero and a martyr to free speech. To others, it’s a Muslim-baiter that gratuitously offends believers in Islam in ways that exceed even the bounds of satire. 
 
Examining the paper’s history and the social media phenomenon it inspired, this book asks: what are we saying about ourselves if we say, “I am Charlie?”
 
Patricia Crouch, Ph. D., is an Associate Professor at Framingham State University in Massachusetts.
