dc.description.abstract Princess Hijab is a graffiti artist and culture jammer whose work depicts figures in advertising fully or partially covered in Muslim veils. Her work employs both culture jamming to send a message to advertisers as well as political jamming in response to the French "burqa bans" that have been enacted to various degrees over the past decade. This paper analyzes Princess Hijab's street art through the lens of culture jamming, and draws critical implications regarding multiplicity within a rhetorical act, the hijab as a sliding signifier, and the use of ambiguity as a tool.
