Conversations With Francoise Verges
de C Saire Aim C Saire
Sobre o livro
Aim C saire s work is foundational for decolonial and postcolonial thought. His Discourse on Colonialism, first published in 1955, influenced generations of scholars and activists at the forefront of liberation struggles in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean and it remains a classic of anticolonial thought. This unique volume takes the form of a series of interviews with C saire that were conducted by Fran oise Verg s in 2004, shortly before his death. C saire s responses to Verg s questions cover a wide range of topics, including the origins of his political activism, the legacies of slavery and colonialism, the question of reparation for slavery and the problems of marrying literature to politics. The book includes a substantial postface by Verg s in which she situates C saire s work in its intellectual and political context. This timely book brings C saire back into the present-day conversation on race, slavery and the legacy of colonialism. His penetrating insights on these matters should appeal to scholars and students throughout the humanities and social sciences as well as to the general public.
