The Violence of Decolonization


Recommended Posts

Jan. 9 2023

We hear so much about "decolonization" nowadays. Whether it's decolonizing the curriculum, decolonizing science, decolonizing Shakespeare, decolonizing the nation, or whatever; whether it's decolonizing education following from Joe Kincheloe's project on Paulo Freire; wherever we hear it, it means something. So it can be better understood, in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay takes a dive into one of the key early texts of decolonization and Postcolonial Theory: Frantz Fanon's legendary The Wretched of the Earth (https://amzn.to/3CgWNFr). Fanon minces no words, writing in the first sentence, "whatever may be the headings used or the new formulas introduced, decolonization is always a violent phenomenon." Join James to learn more about these roots and what they represent.
