A case study in colonial Bildungskarikatur

. Among the complexities of employing novel theory of any sort as a heuristic for interpreting political cartoons, are certain differences in narrative form and their impact on the process of reading. A striking case is the incongruous phenomenologies of consumption enjoined by each genre. Infamously labelled by Henry James as ‘large loose baggy monsters’, nineteenth-century novels are long, and reading them requires the gradual accretion of detail and incident over a significant period of time; powers of memory and sublimation were particularly tested by the process of

The tragic voice of Richard Wright

existentialism, and its hold over popular mentalities, can also be explained by the presence of Paris noir , in which the overriding imperative of the constitution of black subjectivity – after colonialism, after slavery – recast the traditions of classical philosophy. 38 Phenomenology in the technical nomenclature and existentialism in the popular idiom represented, in David Macey

The predicament of history

négritude are significant in this respect. So too, as Mary Chamberlain establishes, was George Lamming’s entry in the middle 1950s into the Parisian intellectual milieu which brought together Sartrean phenomenology and négritude – from which so much contemporary thinking on ‘the fact of blackness’ has subsequently derived. Insofar as French philosophy touched the intellectual culture of the British in

time and spatial dimensions which are a product of the contact zone’s limited duration. Instead, Evans prefers the term frontier, despite many of, the problems she identifies. Drawing on post-colonial theory and informed by an appreciation of phenomenology, Evans questions the intersubjectivity of the frontier and goes beyond to speculate what this means for our understandings of the post-frontier as well as the

Benjamin Franklin and the American frontier, the Moravians, and the nature of reason

Standing on a hill, above the canopy, the trees become an abstraction: a forest that can be apprehended and comprehended as a whole. Thus we might begin the phenomenology of an idea: the Frontier. As the eye takes in more of its mass, the forest becomes an expanding realm with a horizon; a frontier in which all possibilities are already surmounted by the

The ‘nigger’ minstrel and British imperialism

, and in my view this acceptance of black stereotypical attributes cannot be accounted for solely in terms of the phenomenology of the theatrical experience. We have to move back and forth analytically between that experience and the social experience which provided its wider context. The blackface mask was, I would suggest, a ritualistic device, for in foreclosing rather
