Death, Mutation, and Rebirth: The Migrant in the Fiction of Salman Rushdie
http://www.trill-home.com/rushdie/jason_paper.html
A student essay. "Shame, Midnight's Children, and The Satanic Verses all deal with the death the migrant dies, the agony of mutation, and the emancipation and self- knowledge of rebirth. One can understand this unifying theme in Rushdie's works by examining his life, his deliberately chosen style of prose, the theme of "double identity" in his novels and in his personality, and the benefits that many characters reap from being migrants."

The Limits of What Is Possible: Reimagining Sharam in Salman Rushdie's Shame
http://social.chass.ncsu.edu/jouvert/v1i1/sharpe.htm
"Through Sufiyia Zinobia, Rushdie introduces the imaginative possibility of women's shame producing anger and self-pride rather than embarrassment and family honor. By creating a magical character that plays with the gendering of izzat [honor] and sharam [shame], [Rushdie] breaks down the taken-for-grantedness of female modesty. "
