Orientalism explained

Orientalism, a term first brought to prominence by Edward Said, is about how Europeans and Americans constructed self-serving images of the Orient. It works to weave a story that the West is bringing civilisation and grace to the rest of the world. More than 40 years later, Said's analysis is still relevant across politics, art, music, movies, religion and culture.
