Frantz Fanon and the Future of Cultural Politics : Finding Something Different, Hardback Book

Frantz Fanon and the Future of Cultural Politics : Finding Something Different Hardback


This book focuses on a reading of Frantz Fanon's work and life, asking how the work of a revolutionary writer such as Fanon might be best appropriated for contemporary political and cultural issues. Separate chapters introduce Fanon's life and examine the question of Fanon as our contemporary; review the field of "Fanon studies" that has grown up around his work; bring Fanon into conversation with the critical contemporary figures Edward Said, Michel Foucault, Jamaica Kincaid, and Paul Gilroy; and turn to Fanon's work to think through the contemporary popular uprisings that have come to be known as the "Arab Spring." The book concludes by arguing that a reevaluation of Fanon's life and work can provide us with a particular set of lessons about solidarity-lessons that are crucial for the contemporary political struggles that face us today and that will continue to confront us in the future.

Finding Something Different: Frantz Fanon and the Future of Cultural Politics is inspired by Fanon's unsparing struggle against the depredations of racism and colonialism, and his lifelong commitment to finding something different.
