Albert Memmi's classic work stands as one of the most powerful and psychologically penetrating studies of colonial oppression ever written. Dissecting the minds of both the oppressor and the oppressed, Memmi reveals truths about the colonial situation and struggle that are as relevant today as they were five decades ago.Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer's new critical Introduction draws Memmi into the 21st century by reflecting on his achievements and highlighting his omissions. In doing so she opens new avenues of enquiry for scholars and students, and exposes new directions for activists seeking a more just world order in our neo-colonial age.With the fires of war, terrorism and protest burning around the globe, never has Memmi's work been such relevant and necessary reading.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Hamburg, language: English, abstract: It is a fact that Shakespeare’s plays are an essential part of the Elizabethan period and hence deal with topics characteristic of this time. This is also true of The Tempest, which was probably written in 1610 – 1611, for it is concerned with the theme of colonization and exploration of the New World, the newly discovered Americas. The Elizabethan period is known as the Age of Exploration. Thus, The Tempest not only deals with the effects of colonization and civilization on the natives but some critics also tend to read this play as a metaphor of colonialism, since every character is concerned with how he would govern the island if he was the ruler. However, The Tempest can be regarded as a play whose plot is completely original and also very personal. The critic Richard Dutton even claims that there is a “theory that Prospero in The Tempest represents Shakespeare himself”. Critics have taken this play very seriously and have pointed out its complexity. Hence, Stanley Wells says that “The Tempest (...) is a supremely poetic drama (...) because it speaks (...) on many levels, universally relevant (...) and (...) universally effective”. Why is The Tempest regarded as so original and unique? Well, one might find an answer to this question by taking a closer look at its background, its sources, its structure and at its main characters. For this reason, I will deal with the sources of The Tempest in more detail in the following chapter. In a next step, the dramatic structure of the play will be analyzed. Since this play is mainly about colonizers and the colonized, it is also of vital importance to analyze the prominent character Caliban and the European characters’ attitude to him, in this context. It will be argued that Caliban becomes a victim of colonization.

Over the last two decades, the experiences of colonization and decolonization, once safely relegated to the margins of what occupied students of history and literature, have shifted into the latter's center of attention, in the West as elsewhere. This attention does not restrict itself to the historical dimension of colonization and decolonization, but also focuses upon their impact upon the present, for both colonizers and colonized.The nearly fifty essays here gathered examine how literature, now and in the past, keeps and has kept alive the experiences - both individual and collective - of colonization and decolonization. The contributors to this volume hail from the four corners of the earth, Eastand West, North and South. The authors discussed range from international luminaries past and present such as Aphra Behn, Racine, Blaise Cendrars, Salman Rushdie, Graham Greene, Derek Walcott, Guimarães Rosa, J.M. Coetzee, André Brink, and Assia Djebar, to less known but certainly not lesser authors like Gioconda Belli, René Depestre, Amadou Koné, Elisa Chimenti, Sapho, Arthur Nortje, Es'kia Mphahlele, Mark Behr, Viktor Paskov, Evelyn Wilwert, and Leïla Houari. Issues addressed include the role of travel writing in forging images of foreign lands for domestic consumption, the reception and translation of Western classics in the East, the impact of contemporary Chinese cinema upon both native and Western audiences, and the use of Western generic novel conventions in modern Egyptian literature.

The New Plantation

Black Athletes, College Sports, and Predominantly White NCAA Institutions

The New Plantation examines the controversial relationship between predominantly White NCAA Division I Institutions (PWI s) and black athletes, utilizing an internal colonial model. It provides a much-needed in-depth analysis to fully comprehend the magnitude of the forces at work that impact black athletes experiences at PWI s. Hawkins provides a conceptual framework for understanding the structural arrangements of PWI s and how they present challenges to Black athletes academic success; yet, challenges some have overcome and gone on to successful careers, while many have succumbed to these prevailing structural arrangements and have not benefited accordingly. The work is a call for academic reform, collective accountability from the communities that bear the burden of nurturing this athletic talent and the institutions that benefit from it, and collective consciousness to the Black male athletes that make of the largest percentage of athletes who generate the most revenue for the NCAA and its member institutions. Its hope is to promote a balanced exchange in the athletic services rendered and the educational services received.

"From diversity comes strength and wisdom": this was the guiding principle for selecting the articles in this collection. Because there is no single voice, identity, history, or cultural experience that represents the women of the First Nations, a realistic picture will have many facets. Accordingly, the authors in Women of the First Nations include Native and non-Native scholars, feminists, and activists from across Canada.Their work examines various aspects of Aboriginal women's lives from a variety of theoretical and personal perspectives. They discuss standard media representations, as well as historical and current realities. They bring new perspectives to discussions on Aboriginal art, literature, historical, and cultural contributions, and they offer diverse viewpoints on present economic, environmental, and political issues.This collection counters the marginalization and silencing of First Nations women's voices and reflects the power, strength, and wisdom inherent in their lives.

Foucaults ordentliche Unterwerfung des Diskurses

Essay aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts / Gegenwart, Note: 1,0, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Zuvorderst werde ich mich an einem Sekundärtext orientieren, der auf einzigartige Weise das Denken Foucaults rezerpiert – Deleuze’ Foucault-Schrift. Deshalb sollen in erster Näherung die wichtigsten Passagen aus dem Primärtext Foucaults, die Archäologie des Wissens von 1969, angeführt werden bezüglich den diskursiven Einheiten und die sich durch sie bildenden Formationen. In der Gefahr für die Philosophie bzw. die Ideen- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte, die gerade von ihren mannigfaltigen Rändern zu anderen Diskursen, vor allem zur Literatur, ausgeht, sieht Foucault in Von der Subversion des Wissens gerade ihr Rettendes, durch das sie ihr Sprechen wieder in den Griff bekommen kann. Macht erlangt der philosophische Diskurs danach nur zurück, wenn er sich selbst im subversiven Niemandsland der epistemologischen Löcher ansiedelt: „Und in diesem Verschwinden des philosophischen Subjekts bewegt sich die philosophische Sprache wie in einem Labyrinth.“ (Foucault 1987, 45.) Die Aussagen einer diskursiven Formation werden geformt durch die auf derselben Ebene angesiedelten Regeln des Übergangs, d. h. der Variation zwischen verschieden Diskursen. Eine solche Formung erfolgt vor allem intuitiv oder assoziativ und ist gleichsam Ursache der diskursiven Streuung und Heterogenität einer Aussagenfamilie. Die Intuition und Assoziation faltet demnach Aussagen regelhaft im Raum der Verknappung und macht sie interdiskursiv, das heißt, jenseits von Sätzen und Propositionen eines Diskurses ausdrücklich wiederholbar. Eine interdiskursive Aussage ist mannigfaltig.
