larger effort to understand and use knowledge and its construction and co-construction in ways that are authentically linked to the struggles of everyday people for a better world. The global neo-liberal economic agenda that has produced a kind of market utopia has been supported by a canon of western, largely male, elite knowledge systems and practices. As the failure of the global market to close the gaps between the rich and poor or provide a platform for more democratic citizen engagement becomes clearer every day, we are thinking of ways to decolonize knowledge

Postmemory and identity in harki and pied noir narratives

reconstruction and exceed comprehension. These events happened in the past, but their effects continue in the present. (2012: 5) Yet, as both Kerchouche and Galdeano suggest, reticence, the fathers’ repression of the trauma of war and decolonization, produces equally devastating effects and urges the postgeneration to repair the violence of the past and the (self-)enforced silence through telling and writing. The pied noir son’s family narrative in Harkis, pieds-noirs, nos cœurs orphelins and the harki daughter’s imaginative reconstruction of her parents’ past are both love

society. As the Introduction notes, these factors will be present in different proportion in each case, yet one or some combination of them will produce the dominant frame or interpretation for the threat of terrorism that will determine the government's response. For some countries, like Egypt and Algeria, the history of violence within the state – specifically, the struggles for decolonization and the attending social fissures that came about afterwards – looms large and determines much about who is, and is not, considered a terrorist. For others, like Saudi Arabia

In this chapter we look at the work and perspectives of historians in the field of postcolonial history. The decades immediately following the Second World War have often been described as the ‘age of decolonization’. During the second half of the twentieth century the European powers granted independence to, or were forced out of, colonies acquired over the previous four centuries. 1 The magnitude of European imperial expansion may be measured both by its unprecedented geographic spread, and the millions of human beings whose lives and cultures were

USA attempted to build functioning, cohesive and legitimate state institutions in less developed contexts, including new states emerging from the decolonization process? Have these lessons been learned, or have they been lost? A substantial body of scholarship has argued that American foreign policy-makers have long exacerbated or even created problems of instability and militarism in the Third World through shortsighted ‘security assistance’ programmes. One central problem such scholars perceive is a tendency on Washington’s part to analyse events in the Third

Localizing global sport for development

how little sport may offer development; and to learn more about the forms of support required to achieve this. Our being involved researchers has, therefore, enhanced the quality of the research, not detracted from it. Underpinning this approach has been our commitment to localizing and decolonizing knowledge production. The decolonization standpoint advocates that knowledge production can significantly benefit from culturally appropriate

The Xinjiang emergency in China’s ‘new type of international relations’
David Tobin

(IR) approaches to reverse ‘national humiliation’ and de-colonize world order. Leading intellectuals narrate China's identity as a ‘new type of superpower’, using consent and harmony to organize domestic politics and world order, contrasted against Western coercion and conflict (Hu 2012 ; Zhang 2012 ). Critical political scientists describe political challenges in democracies (terrorism, financial crises, and declining incomes) as evidence that we live in an ‘age of anxiety’ (Eklundh et al. 2017 ). However, China’s foreign policy

continuity’, while men are constructed as the progressive agents of modernity (McClintock 1997 : 359). In an echo of the gendering of space in colonialism (the feminisation of the territory to be occupied, possessed or penetrated), nationalist resistance also establishes a gendering of space, so that ‘decolonization is waged over the territoriality of the female, domestic space’ (McClintock 1997 : 360). In Algeria, as Nefissa

The Making of a “Post-Colonial” Sociologist
Zine Magubane

“as a problem, as trouble, as danger, not as a solution”. 9 This was completely understandable given his location as a displaced colonial subject bearing witness to the “articulation of decolonization with the darker geopolitics of the global Cold War”. 10 For Hall, the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary and the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev’s condemnation of Joseph Stalin, were game-changers. It was a “curious time for a colonial to be experiencing life in the metropole”, and Hall came to question profoundly whether class struggle alone was enough to undo racism
