Secrecy and revelation serve as a marker in early Arabo-Islamic discourse, textual productions, and material cultures, contends Khan (Islamic studies, Trinity U., Texas), pointing to the centrality of ciphering, deciphering, coding, decoding, signs, and semiotics. She looks at the Qur'an; self as cipher in the Book of Concealing the Secret; love, sexuality, and the body; and toward a literary archaeology of the private and the secret.
