Claiming the Human, Critiquing the Human

In the conclusion of The Wretched of the Earth, Frantz Fanon points to the limits of the European humanist subject (“Man”) and the ways in which its definition has involved violent actions and exclusions. He calls for a non-Eurocentric project to invent a “new man” that requires an expansion and reconsideration of humanity. This task of imagining and bringing into being a new human seems to involve a delicate double bind: humanity must be claimed in the name of those excluded from its purview; the claim to be human, however, may unwittingly reinforce the transparency and self-evidence of the very category that needs to be interrogated, thus further marginalizing alternative versions of humanity.

ACLA 2017: More Than Hybrid: Theorizing the Literature of Immigration

In the past twenty years, scholarship on European literature of immigration has often fallen under the rubric of postcolonial studies, employing analytic lenses that are fundamentally rooted in the era of colonization (i.e., the Manichean colonizer/colonized binary of Fanon, the négritude of Aimé Césaire, the “hybridity,” and “mimicry” of Homi K. Bhabha, the different iterations of subalternity posited by the Subaltern Studies collective and Gayatri Spivak).

Autobiographical Narratives and the Uprisings of the Global South: the Private, the Collective, and the Global

This panel focuses on the autobiographical narratives of the Global South with a particular attention to those produced during popular revolts and regime-changing uprisings, like the fall of the dictatorships in Latin America, the demise of Apartheid in South Africa, and, more recently, the Arab Uprisings. The first axis that guides our panel is the relationship between “the subject” and “the collective” (understood as the tribal, the sectarian, or the national). These texts, which are generally written by activists, public intellectuals, journalists, or established literary figures, are mostly appreciated as counter-narratives or as the petits récits of national memory.
