D. H. Lawrence once stated that it is hard to hear a new voice, as hard as
it is to listen to an unknown language. It is precisely around this analogy
that Lawrence’s claim becomes political. What is it that makes the spoken
word unintelligible? It is not simply a matter of speaking in a language
unknown to others. Rather, the problem lies in not being understood or
heard despite shared language. Deleuze’s notion of minor literature becomes
the aegis for such thinking. Posited as a practice of politics, minor
literature seeks the conditions of possibility of becoming a nomad in
relation to one’s own language. This nomadic relation to the major language

Postcolonial perspectives on Collecting

The private collection has been viewed by some as emblematic of bourgeois
European subjectivity. As Walter Benjamin has noted, the collection, a
world in miniature, wrests an object from its context and reorganizes it
according to a new system, a new rationality, devised by the collector
himself. While he believes the collection "emancipates" the object from its
original context, other authors, such as the anthropologist James Clifford,
have questioned the power relations by which one culture appears entitled
to collect the products of another.

When the second plane strikes the Second International Tower of New York,
we are there. When the American troops march into Iraq, we see
personally a land in real war. When the glazier falls in the far South
Pole, we all feel the trebling under our feet. When the long line of
refugees wanders through the border of Somalia, when a civilian is beaten
to death by the opposing mob, we all witness them personally. They are
happening to our neighbor at our door steps. When the housing market
collapses; when the stock dips deep; when the Earth grows warm; when the
ozone hole grows larger and larger, when…; we experience them instantly
