Time and space

beautiful); but their political-economic backwardness, entailing a time lag, also embodied a historical holdup, a lack of modernity, a temporal social-spatial inferiority, algo feo (something ugly). Thinking through these simultaneous spatial/temporal distinctions, I engaged scholarship on the coloniality/decoloniality of power as well as a range of other vital writing on/from the south of the Rio Grande

An introduction

-modern/trans-modern that have characterized South Asian subaltern studies, Latin American scholarship on coloniality/decoloniality, and postcolonial perspectives at large. The critical concerns extend to the tangible presence yet ambivalent articulations of time/space – turning on “culture” and “tradition” – in formations of history, anthropology, and historical anthropology. On offer are intellectual

What does race have to do with the Yugoslav region?
Catherine Baker

the very association between Europeanness and modernity is, in critical race theory and decolonial thought (Mills 1997 ; Mignolo 2000 ), an inherently racialised logic. Such a notion would require the region to have been subject to utterly separate historical forces from those that shaped western Europe and the territories it colonised; and it weakens further once one views postcoloniality and postsocialism (i.e. the social–economic–political–cultural dislocations produced by the collapse of state socialism, often thought to distinguish contemporary eastern Europe

-Ottoman heritage and Non-Aligned legacies, as well as after-effects of Austrian, Hungarian and Italian rule, on to the cloth of decolonial thought: but doing so requires integrating theories of global racial formations, ‘race in translation’ and the ‘global colour line’ (Vučetić 2013 ) into the study of state socialism and postsocialism. This requires reckonings south-east European studies rarely make. Where Frantz Fanon ( 1963 : 96 in Bhambra 2014 : 31) argues ‘the opulence of Europe “has been founded on slavery” ’, does this include the opulence of Habsburg Zagreb, Venetian

through which to advance a critique of all societal domains, a proclaimed optimal ‘perspectival monism’, which is particularly divisive. As I argue below, drawing on Thompson, Fraser, and McNay, and various decolonial theorists, Honneth’s perspectival monism is fundamentally flawed and precipitates political, philosophical, and social-theoretical complications.

On the battle for critical theory
Neal Harris

-theoretical ‘anchoring’ in left-Hegelianism ( Delanty and Harris, 2021 ). Such a caution seems increasingly relevant in light of the trend to incorporate liberal, ideal-theoretical philosophy within the framing of critical theory which has no foundation in social critique. Deconstructionism, post-modernism, post-structuralism, decoloniality, and queer theory are not invested in the framing of pathology diagnosing social criticism

The Frankfurt School beyond recognition
Neal Harris

scholarship, and reasonably searching new territory in their quest for a critical theory of society. We can see radical students turning in droves to decolonial, post-colonial, post-structuralist, and queer theory, in addition to a return to explicitly Marxist scholarship. I believe deserting Frankfurt School scholarship at its moment of crisis is the wrong course to adopt. In contrast

Identities and incitements

they have also put a different spin on configurations of time and space in the past and the present. In addition to perspectives on the coloniality/decoloniality of power/knowledge that were discussed earlier, important here have been distinct studies focusing on the linkages of the Enlightenment and empire, race and reason, the past and the present. 27 Pasts and communities All

's geopolitical identity, so often called ‘between East and West’, could involve even more than balancing Europe's privileged West and Othered East; sometimes it pulled Yugoslavia southwards out of Europe altogether, into the post-Bandung configuration that for scholars like Mignolo ( 2011 : 273) ignited the decolonial moment. But this was not the first ambiguous racial formation in the Yugoslav region: even before unification, multiple such formations already circulated through the region, creating contradictory points of identification. Their legacies of racialised thinking

Stephen Hobden

postcolonial critiques of critical theory Jan McArthur ( 2021 : 1) poses the question: ‘is critical theory fit for purpose in a “decolonial age”?’ The problems, she notes, ‘are obvious’. We can summarise these as critical theory being the work of dead white European men, drawing on the work of other dead white European men, obsessed with European rationality, and ignoring the histories of racism, colonialism slavery and patriarchy. Certainly, something that unites the thinkers so far is that, whether in a critical or traditional framework, they have been
