Soldier, psychoanalyst, political activist, and post-colonial theorist—in his intense and brief life, Frantz Fanon wore many masks. And his influence has been as variegated as well; the list of those who fell under his sway include, to name just a few, Sartre and De Beauvoir, Homi Bahba, film director Gillo Pontecorvo, and the Black Panthers. This panel invites papers that explore and meditate upon how Fanon’s vibrant life and enduring writings influenced and continue to operate upon our present cultural and political moment.

This panel focuses on the enduring influence of Frantz Fanon by looking at specific works, ideas, and connections between Fanon and events, especially those of national liberation between his lifetime and the present time.
